Just last week, we came across the news that Citi Bike could very well live to see another year if (1) membership prices increased and (2) a new investor decided to fund the operation. But, of course, there was one hitch: The city refused to let Alta Bike Share, the company behind Citi Bike, increase membership prices unless they expanded the programs coverage by 3,800 bikes.
Well, Alta was listening and now, Brownstoner is reporting that they’ve added a new station in Clinton Hill.
Update: Apparently, it was just a new bike corral, but our point about Brooklyn being underserved still stands.
The new Citi Bike rack is located on Fulton Street between St. James and Cambridge Places and will be one of roughly 70 stations in Brooklyn and one of nearly a dozen in Clinton Hill.
Now, if only they’d expand to the just as feasible neighborhoods of Bed-Stuy, Bushwick, Greenpoint, Crown Heights, East Williamsburg, Park Slope, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill and other underserved parts of Brooklyn.
