On October 19, representatives from the Department of Transportation held a community planning workshop at the Hope City Empowerment Center on Washington Avenue. The purpose of the workshop was to gather input on the location of Citi Bike stations in the western part of Community Board 8 and Community Board 9. DOT expects to install the stations during the summer of 2017 in an area bounded by Atlantic Avenue, Rogers Avenue, Lefferts Avenue, Washtinton Avenue, Eastern Parkway and Flatbush Avenue (see map below; click to enlarge). 15-20 stations are expected to be installed in the part of the area north of Eastern Parkway, including Prospect Heights. DOT will present specific proposed locations to Community Boards 8 and 9 prior to finalizing the plan.
