Get your helmets ready L.I.C, because Citi Bike is coming to Queens. Soon, many of the more popular areas of LIC will be lined with blue bikes and their stations. Though Citi Bike’s intention was to bring their services to LIC much earlier on, expansion first halted after Citi Bikes suffered water setback from Hurricane Sandy.

After hiring Jay Walder as the new chief executive last fall, Citi Bike has seen in an increasing push in their growth in numbers and development for better quality bikes and services. So despite some struggles, it seems the Citi Bike is back on track.

The bikes are getting a new makeover along with better features that include gears, night lights, faster-reacting breaks, and water-conscious seats. The company has also been working on improving their technological software for their app, website, and kiosks for a more user-friendly approach.
