    To the editors,

    Kate Briquelet’s article on CitiBike missed the real story. DOT has met with thousands of New Yorkers in community workshops, as well as gathering crowd-sourced information via their website, to figure out where to place bike kiosks. I attended two community workshops last spring and enjoyed contributing my ideas and speaking with DOT reps.

    Polls show that the majority of New Yorkers support Bike Share, and Community Boards all over the city have worked closely with Alta Bike Share to ensure smooth implementation. Like thousands of other city residents eagerly awaiting the start of CitiBike, I will be purchasing a membership on the first day the system is running, and I’m glad there will be a kiosk near my home.

    In the Staten Island Advance article, one of the commenters from Staten Island coined a new term for speeding drivers — “auto-hoodlums.” Love it!
