Citi Bike Comes to Governors Island!
Aug 5, 2015 11:06 am
We are thrilled to announce that there is now yet another way to enjoy Governors Island by bike – Citi Bike has arrived on Governors Island!
In response to visitor requests, The Trust for Governors Island and the Governors Island Alliance worked with Citi Bike to expand to Governors Island. We are so pleased to now be a part of it.
Citi Bike is the City’s bike sharing system. It consists of a fleet of specially designed bikes that are locked into a network of docking stations sited around Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. The bikes can be rented from and then returned to any station in the system.
Visitors can bring a Citi Bike over with them on the ferry or pick up one from docking stations located at Soissons Landing (right outside of Building 110) or at Yankee Pier. Visitors can of course still bring their own bikes to the Island as well, or rent bikes from Blazing Saddles, our bike concession located in Colonels Row.
Governors Island is an oasis for biking and a great place to try out Citi Bike in a car-free environment if you haven’t had a chance to jump on one yet. We are so pleased that visitors will now have more options for enjoying our miles of bike paths.
