THE BRONX - Some Bronx cyclists are wondering when it will be their turn to hop on the city's new bike sharing program.

Citi Bike is launching in Manhattan and Brooklyn on Memorial Day, with plans to expand to Queens in the near future, but many are now asking why the Bronx is being left out of the picture. The borough has become increasingly bike-friendly, with 15 miles of the expanding Bronx River Greenway already in place.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) says the first bike locations were picked based on the high density of residents and visitors to generate the most ridership.

The program will provide 6,000 bikes at 330 docking stations. Riders can pay an annual fee of $95 for unlimited rides of up to 45 minutes, or they can pay by the week or day.
