The Department of Transportation (DOT) released a map last week outlining more than 40 locations for new Citi Bike stations in Astoria.

Stations will be located along a radius spanning Ditmars Boulevard, Steinway Street, 44th Street, Northern Boulevard and 35th Avenue. The map also includes additional stations in Long Island City that are planned to go up this summer.

DOT held several community planning meetings to ask for input from Astoria residents and is now collecting feedback on the map and will release a map with finalized locations in early spring or summer. Implementation is set to begin late summer, a DOT spokesperson said.

Stations are planned for heavily trafficked areas such as Astoria Park, Noguchi Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park and the Museum of the Moving Image.

There are also stations planned for Astoria Houses and Ravenswood Houses that will be coordinated with the New York City Housing Authority.
