It was only a matter of time before this was going to happen. A petition is underway asking the NYC Department of Transportation and Community Board 10 to assist the Village of Harlem in expanding and having access to Citi Bike Share in Harlem.
The campaign started recently and was sent to HarlemGal Inc in response to our recent blog coverage on the bike share program.
If you’re interested in signing the petition, click here. The campaign’s goal is more than a hundred signatures.
