Next month the Citi Bike Share Program will be expanding outside of the five boroughs and across state lines to Jersey City. This has angered some city residents especially avid biker Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. who made the following statement.
STATEMENT FROM BOROUGH PRESIDENT DIAZ
RE: Citi Bike Expansion to New Jersey
“It is deplorable that Citi Bike is expanding to New Jersey before the rest of the city. My borough deserves better, as do the parts of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island that are not currently served by our city’s official bike share program.
“Citi Bike is operated by NYC Bike Share. That ‘NYC’ should mean something,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
