The city's bike share program is delayed again, with a new launch date set for March.

Citi Bike, a bike rental program that will have 600  stations around New York City, has been delayed until next month. It was supposed to kick off this month, according to Citi Bike’s website, but its homepage was changed and now says that it is  “scheduled to launch summer 2012.”  Though the delay was just confirmed, in early July, Citi Bike tweeted that it would launch in late July or early August.

When it begins, the program will have 10,00 bikes that riders can rent short term for a small fee or with a $95 annual membership. In Queens, there will be 10 stations in Long Island City. The other stations will be throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn.
