New York latest city to introduce bike scheme

New York has become the latest city to introduce a bike sharing programme that offers readily available push bikes to the public. The Big Apple’s Citi Bike programme launched this Monday, with thousands of bikes now accessible for residents and those on holiday in New York City.

However, much like London’s very own bike scheme, the new programme has been met with mixed reviews. The new service experienced several setbacks in the run up to the launch as the scheme was hit by complaints and lawsuits.Sunset in Manhattan

 “Like most New York controversies, it is louder than it is large. Average New Yorkers take things in stride. The rest of them complain. And then they file lawsuits,” wrote Ashley Halsey III, of the New York Post.

However, thought the new scheme was met with some scrutiny, the launch of the programme was mostly successful, although one bike had been reported stolen at the end of the scheme’s first day. People taking advantage of the new scheme tweeted about their experiences using the hashtag #citibike and most comments appeared to be positive.Citi Bike, NYC

“sighted: man literally grinning as he pedaled his #citibike down broadway,” read one tweet from twitter user @amzan.

The Citi Bike scheme has been modelled off other bikes schemes both in the US and in other countries. Washington’s Capital Bikeshare scheme has been a roaring success with more than 22,000 members and around 1,800 bikes in the D.C area, and New York hopes to achieve the same success as the capital.

New York’s Citi Bike scheme is currently only available in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Plans to roll out the service to other districts in New York are yet to be announced.
