The Best, Most Fair Citi Bike Documentary So Far


The hand-wringing and knee-jerking hysteria over Citi Bike is finally dying down. For a level-headed look at the bike-share program, try New York City filmmaker (and bike-video pro) Casey Neistat’s take. First, he acknowledges that almost everything in this town is “a huge pain in the ass” and, with that out of the way, proceeds to rate the Citi Bikes on a scale of comfort, speed, cost, and ease of use, as compared to his own bike and a taxi. His findings may surprise you, mostly because they’re not insane or overwrought in any way.
