More than 50 new Citi Bike docking stations will be installed in Astoria in coming weeks as the bike-share company expands its network deeper into Queens.
The expansion will extend Citi Bike’s service area north of Ditmars Boulevard and east of Steinway Street. There will be 52 docking stations in the new coverage area that will cover 2.11 square miles.
Citi Bike first came to Astoria in 2017, after getting a foothold in the borough when it installed stations in Long Island City in 2015. The bike share company also has plans to install stations in Sunnyside and Woodside this spring.
