Citibike Debuts in New York City!

5:00 AM PDT on May 28, 2013

Memorial Day 2013 will always mark the beginning of a new era in NYC transportation history: the debut of the Citibike bike sharing system. 6,000 (of a planned 10k) bikes were available to over 11,000 members who signed up for a yearly pass - and many of them couldn't wait to  hit the ground biking!

The press conference at City Hall was a media frenzy. Hundreds of reporters and cameras were on hand to watch Mayor Bloomberg and Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan ring in the launch.  Streetfilms was there at this historical moment and put together this fun 4 minute film.
