After countless delays and much kvetching, the Department of Transportation this morning began to roll out hundreds of Citi Bikes — the centerpieces of New York City's citywide bike share program — onto 400 or so stations scattered across the five boroughs (but mostly just Manhattan and Brooklyn). Thirteen thousand people have already signed up to ride around town for 45 minutes or less, making this the largest program of its kind in the country before the official launch on Monday. Memorial Day is going to be a bit more bumpy on the streets of New York.
