That’s right! You’ll soon be seeing those blue chariots pass 59th street. The program will be doubling in size by 2017 by adding 6,000 new bikes and 375 new stations.

You can suggest a new location for bike stations at www.nyc.gov/bikeshare. For more info on the expansion check out http://citibikeblog.tumblr.com/post/101182979267/expansion-woo-hoo.

Editor’s note: We can’t wait to see people try to bike up those uptown hills.

Would you use these bikes when their installed? Is it even a good thing?
