Yes, the wheels on the bus go round 'n' round, but a different set of wheels have made their debut in the Big Apple this summer. Citi Bike, a new bicycle-sharing program, allows pedestrians to harness their pedal-powered potential with rentable bikes—each equipped with lights, bells and GPS screens. Docking stations are installed all around Manhattan and Brooklyn—alongside public parks, in pedestrian plazas and on wide sidewalks—allowing for a multitude of departure-and-arrival combinations. Weekly ($25) and one-day ($9.95) options are available, entitling customers to 30-minute trips before they must renew their ride or return the bike at any station (or risk incurring a fee.) Ride on!
