With 350 bikes at 35 stations, the Citi Bike program brings new transportation option for communities across Jersey City; Fully interoperable with Citi Bike New York City
Jersey City, NJ — Citi Bike Jersey City launched with a flourish On Monday, September 21st, 2015 with Mayor Steven M. Fulop joining Jay Walder, President & CEO of Motivate, funders and community supporters to cut the ribbon at the Citi Bike station in the Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza, bringing the 350-bike, 35-station system online.
Citi Bike Jersey City is fully supported by sponsorship and other revenues, making it the only bike share system in a mid-size city to operate without public funding. Citi is the Title Sponsor for the new system. Four additional organizations – the Horizon Foundation for New Jersey, SUEZ North America, CarePoint Health and Jersey City Medical Center–Barnabas Health have been named Founding Sponsors. An investment by Goldman Sachs will allow for the initial purchase of docking stations and bicycles. Fully interoperable with New York City’s Citi Bike, the system allows those who commute or travel between the two cities to use their memberships in both independent systems.
