So what am I missing? Why do they have to remove all the bikes/racks? I thought the purpose of the blue van was to move the bikes back to high usage areas? Hard to believe Bike JC endorsed this... what's next closing untravelled bike-only lanes because they are high maintenance and never used?

CitiBike JC is withdrawing from Wards A, B, and F. If you live in these wards, or ride CitiBike there, they'll offer you a prorated refund.

Some combination of high annual membership cost, low density of stations, and who knows what other factors, mean that bike share is not going to be part of residents', workers', students' and visitors' transportation solutions in half of the city.

Dear riders,

At Citi Bike Jersey City, we are always seeking to provide the best service for as many riders as possible. After evaluating our 2017 ridership data (also recently analyzed by our friends at Bike JC), and coordinating with the City of Jersey City, we will be relocating 9 of the least utilized stations in the network to boost capacity in high demand areas.

The stations that will be relocated are:

Union Street
Columbia Park
Danforth Light Rail
Bayview Park
MLK Light Rail
West Side Light Rail
Garfield Avenue
Bethune Center

We understand these changes may mean a loss of service to some current members. If you think you are one of them, just give us a call at 1-855-BIKE-311 and we are happy to provide a prorated refund. If you’ve used any of these stations in the past three months, we will send you an email notifying you when we plan to relocate it. We will also be sure to update our app as these stations are moved and new ones join the system. We believe that these adjustments will provide improved service and build a strong foundation for future growth.

Thank you for your understanding.
