Citi Bike Takes New York on “The Policy Shop”

Last week, researchers Lily Gordon-Koven and Nolan Levenson took a ride with James Leyba MUP ’15 to discuss Citi Bike on Wagner’s podcast “The Policy Shop.” The interview was conducted while riding (during stops for safety, of course!). You can check it out here.

Report: Citi Bike Takes New York

Why does Citi Bike work? New York’s densely populated center already encourages residents, workers, and tourists to walk or take transit to get around the city. New York City, famed for its density and walkability, lends itself well to a tightly knit web of bike share stations. There are almost 20 stations per square mile within its service area, and almost 3/4 of its stations are within walking distance of a subway entrance.

Here’s an example of what you’ll see in the report:
