BROOKLYN, NEW YORK (PIX11) – The Citi Bike Share program is about to start.

Stations have been spotted in Bed-Stuy, Clinton Hill, Fort Greene and Downtown Brooklyn.

The program is slated to start in mid-May after being delayed by Hurricane Sandy.

Many people are excited about the new program while others complain that it takes away valuable parking spots.

The program costs $10 a day or $25 per week or $95 for the year.  The city hopes to have ten thousand bikes at six hundred stations.

NYCHA residents and members of Community Development Credit Unions can get memberships for a discounted rate of $65 for the year.

Overtime fees apply.
