The Miami Beach bike-sharing program formerly known as DecoBike will finally expand across the bridge to the city of Miami in November, but the expanded service area isn't the only thing changing. Thanks to a sponsorship from CitiBank, the service will now be known as CitiBike, which is also the name of New York City's similar service. Both cities will also get new three-speed bikes.
That's exciting, but of course the news everyone wants to know is where the bike stations will be located in Miami. Well, here's your first map, showing 750 bikes (compared with Miami Beach's 1,000) spread across 75 stations throughout the city.
All of the stations except two are located east of I-95 and south of the Julia Tuttle Causeway.
The exceptions are one station just west of 95 along Calle Ocho and one station in the Design District.
Otherwise, the stations are placed mostly along the Biscayne corridor, with clusters in Brickell, Wynwood, and Coconut Grove. Notably, there are no stations in Overtown.
