According to a police spokesperson, the incident happened on Sunday around 10:30 p.m. at the Steinway Street station in Astoria.
Cyclists took more than 630,000 rides on Citi Bike last week, smashing an all time record for the eight-year-old bike share program.
"This is a big step toward continuing to grow Citi Bike’s role as a truly regional bike share program that meets the first- and last-mile commute needs of New Jersey residents, who often have bikeshare transportation needs on both sides of the Hudson."
“We continue to increase the number of e-bikes and will have thousands on the street by the end of the summer," a Citi Bike spokesperson said.
Lyft, which owns Citi Bike, has also rolled out a new pricing scheme for the bikes.
Citi Bike is expanding to Mott Haven, Port Morris and Melrose later this year.
A company spokesperson vowed on multiple occasions that the bikes would be available again come 'fall.'
They were supposed to be back by fall. What gives?
Citi Bike is installing docks at 85 new locations in Bushwick and Ridgewood this fall.
A cyclist says she was assaulted in Midtown South this week by two men who tackled her off of her bike and punched her multiple times.
Since Citi Bike launched in 2013, the system has seen 85 million rides and just two fatalities, one of which was caused by a bus driver who swerved into the cyclist.
The long-awaited third phase of Citi Bike's expansion will touch down in South Bronx and Upper Manhattan next year, before crawling deeper into Brooklyn and Queens by 2023, city officials announced on Tuesday.
