Officials hope to expand Citi Bike to the Bronx by 2020

Local officials are pushing for the expansion of Citi Bike into the Bronx and Staten Island.



Ydanis Rodriguez, city councilman for the Bronx, urged his colleagues to push for the expansion, which would bring the two-wheel ride sharing service to the area. 



The Bronx and Staten Island are the only two boroughs without Citi Bike.



Ruben Diaz Jr., the Bronx Borough president, agrees with the push. 

"Whether it's recreationally, or a way to get to and from different public transportation points, this is something that the Bronx deserves just as much as other parts of the city," says Diaz.



Advocates of the proposal hope to have Citi Bike in the Bronx by 2020.
