Draft Bike-Share Station Map Now Online

This is cool. After receiving thousands of suggestions online and hosting dozens of public workshops about where to site bike-share stations, Alta Bikeshare and NYC DOT have finished a draft map of the initial service area and posted it online this morning. The boundaries for the first phase, which will launch this July, are (roughly): 59th Street, Atlantic Avenue, and Lewis Ave/Bushwick Ave. (Update: There are also ten stations in Long Island City.) The service area is slated to expand to the Upper West Side, Upper East Side, Park Slope, Cobble Hill, Prospect Heights and Crown Heights by next spring.

The station locations are still subject to change prior to launch, as DOT continues to present maps to community boards. If you zoom in and click on locations, you can see how many bicycle docks will be available at each, and whether the station will be located in the curb lane, on the sidewalk, or in a park/plaza.

I'm just starting to browse around the map. Give your first impressions in the comments.
