Upper West Side Citi Bikers will get some help parking their bikes at a particularly busy station next month. The Citi Bike docking stations at 72nd and Columbus will have valets at peak usage times in early April, Citi Bike-operator Motivate said on its website.
If you’re bringing a bike to the station, you’ll still need to place it in a regular dock, but if none are available the valets will be able to take the bike from you instead of making you bike around to find another station. There will be icons on the Citi Bike map showing stations with valet service.
“We have limited availability based on off-station bike parking capacities, so look for a valet icon on the Citi Bike map for live service status before riding.“
