As NYC’s long-delayed bike sharing program pedals closer to its official launch on Tuesday, May 27th, the smartphone app has just gone live. The Citi Bike app, for both iPhone and Android devices, will let riders locate the 330 sharing stations around Manhattan and Brooklyn, including which ones have bikes to borrow or return. The app is built on the Google Maps interface, doubles as a tool for navigating the city, so even if you aren’t enrolled in the Citi Bike program, it’s a useful city map. The Citi Bike app is FREE – search for Citi Bike and look for the Cit Bike map shown here as the app cover. Citi Bike sharing is not free.
