Citi Bike advocates gain momentum in the Bronx

Posted: Updated:
MOTT HAVEN -

Citi Bike advocates are riding their bikes to work in the Bronx Monday in an ongoing effort to attract the bike-sharing service to the borough.

Advocates gathered at the Willis Avenue bridge and collected signatures for their campaign, #citibikeforall.

They say since the beginning of May, thousands of city workers have been riding their bikes to work in the Bronx for Ride to Work month.

The advocates want to show Citi Bike that the Bronx is ready for them.

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