Hoboken, Jersey City Launch Seamless Bike Share
On May 12, Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and Lyft launched a newly unified bikeshare system with a celebratory bike ride from Jersey City Hall to Hoboken’s Pier A. The system will include 820 bikes across Jersey City and Hoboken.
Hoboken is now using Citi Bike as its exclusive bike share operator, while Jersey City is expanding its existing Citi Bike operations into three additional neighborhoods. For the first time, the fleet will comprise both pedal bikes and pedal-assist e-bikes—providing more options to meet diverse riding preferences and allow riders of varying physical abilities to take longer rides, easily climb hills and arrive at their destination more quickly.
“Citi Bike is a proven method of alternative transportation that will instantly provide critical first-mile, last-mile options for our residents and visitors, and substantially improve the quality of life in our Mile Square,” Bhalla said in a statement. “Bringing Citi Bike to Hoboken reflects a commitment that I made to residents when I came into office to improve our bike share system, and I am proud to work with Mayor Fulop and his team to create greater connectivity between our two cities.”
