Bike Share on Governors Island

Starting this Friday, Governors Island will be home to New York City’s first sustained bike share program. Every Friday between June 6th and October 4th, Governors Island visitors can rent adult and children’s bikes at no charge, the Governors Island Preservation and Education Corporation (GIPEC) announced today.

"Biking is a fantastic way to explore Governors Island," said Leslie Koch, President of the Governors Island Preservation and Education Corporation. "We are thrilled to have free biking this summer and we are committed to expanding opportunities for biking as part of our future park and Great Promenade."
