The above CitiBike expansion draft plan was presented at Thursday night’s CB6 Transportation Committee meeting [click here for PDF]. In addition to Cobble Hill, stations will be installed in Red Hook, Gowanus, and Park Slope down to 14th Street. The Department of Transportation, who presented the plan with CitiBike, says that the station density will be lower in this phase of expansion than in parts of the original network. The docks will be deployed in 2016, and the entire phase two expansion is scheduled to be complete by 2017.
Below is a close up of the docks planned for Cobble Hill along with the legend. Two stations of note are in front of Cobble Hill Park, and Trader Joe’s. There will also be three CitiBike docks on or near the Brooklyn Greenway on Columbia Street. This plan will not be finalized for a few months so you and Community Board Six still have a say. The Cobble Hill Association is collecting your feedback about the stations in our neighborhood to present to the DOT with CB6. Please fill out this survey to let us know what you think of the proposal.
