Queens neighbors say bring on the bikes as NYC Department of Transportation responds to electronic glitches with existing bike stations.

The DOT is in the process of raising additional funds. The program is being sponsored by Citibank and Mastercard.

NYC Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer advocated to bring the bike share program to Long Island City as part of the first phase. But the DOT says damage done to equipment during October’s storm has pushed back the roll out.
