In the Heights, we have a big problem with people riding to public transportation, etc, then the racks being empty for long periods of time so no one else can ride. Citibike is supposed to 'rebalance,' bringing more bikes, but they are often slow to do this (if they do it at all). I'd imagine this problem is even worse in other areas. Yes, it is an expense for Citibike, but if the city is allowing stations on public land with the intention of improving transportation for the city, they need to push to make sure it happens.

We were in danger of losing our stations last year but ended up keeping many of them. However, there are still often no bikes mid-day.

Do you use the Leonard Gordon station? There is a problem with more people riding to Journal Square than people riding back and I suspect it's because the ride back to the heights is a bit more arduous. In the last week I've noticed there are more bikes at the station and hope it's a sign of better rebalancing
