    Citi Bike Stations

    “The loss of so many parking spots causes drivers to spend longer periods of time looking for a spot, causing an increase in pollution. On one occasion I had to spend more than an hour looking for a parking spot, with my exhaust unnecessarily polluting the air. Some bikers suggest getting rid of our cars. For many, this is not possible.

    Reality check–CitiBike docks are parking spaces! The stations do not “take up” numerous parking spots, they convert 2-3 car spots to 10-20 bike spots. It would be helpful if someone would reframe this issue constructively.
