I just don't want to support that. I'm seeing vast amounts of premium NY real estate used for Citibike. The city could be investing in a MUCH better bicycling infrastructure for everyone.
You do know that Citigroup are just sponsors of the project, they don't own it?

Same as in other major city's, like London, where there are on their 2nd sponsor, previously Barclays, now Santander

The NYC it's operated by Motivate for more info see here Motivate and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citi_Bike
