Hallie works at the nonprofit WaterAidAmerica. After seeing city after city get bike-share and then waiting two years for Citi Bike, she is thrilled the program is finally here.

"I don't have a bike. There's no bike storage in my building and I'm beyond the age where I want a bike in my living room.

"There's a dock by my house, by my work, by my gym. I'm actually heading to the gym now. The other night I went to a party in TriBeCa - there was a dock right outside.

"I have heard so much complaining. People need to learn how to use the system and give it a chance. It's new."
