Do you use CitiBikes to commute? You do?
Have you ever noticed how hard it can be to find a dock if you come home late from work? Sure you do!
Well, CitiBike has noticed too, and has started a pilot program this month to have valet service at Delancey & Bialystoker weeknights 7:00 pm – 10:45 pm.
That means you don’t have to find an open dock, there will be an actual human waiting at the CitiBike station on that corner who will take your bike for you and check you in.
CitiBike valet has existed at several high-traffic locations around the city during morning and evening rush for a while now. And Grand Street at night might not be as busy as Union Square in the morning, but someone’s noticed that we like our CitiBikes.
The deal is this is a pilot program, which means it could disappear at any time. If we don’t use the valet service, our CitiBike overseers will likely conclude we don’t need it, and they’ll reallocate their yellow-vested resources elsewhere.
