This just in: New York City’s bike share program is now accepting members. The first 5,000 will get a discount on helmets.
The total cost of yearly membership is $103.43 with tax, which puts it just under the cost of a monthly Metrocard.
Next month’s system launch will include 6000 bikes at 330 stations in Manhattan south of 59th street and in Dumbo, Downtown Brooklyn, Prospect Heights, Fort Greene, and Bedford-Stuyvesant.
(Above photos: city transportation commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan dons a sporty helmet and uses a key card to unlock a bike from its dock in Brooklyn.)
