4th Street Washington Square Park Stations

Over the last month, the stations around 4th street Washington Square Park are feeling more and more packed. I've never really had much of a problem getting to class around there, but now I do. There's rarely any parking. Maybe its a seasonal thing and a lot of people dropped off bikes that they never biked back with.

For those who have had Citi Bike for over a year, do you notice trends like this across seasons? Like parking getting harder in the winter.

Also, I'll probably take a weekend to make a few runs, but I feel like if 10-20 people move a bunch of bikes from Washington Square Park, it might be that a lot of those bikes won't come back. Just a PSA lol.

    Yes!. Depending on the season, I can earn 12 points riding to work , or not find a bike at all.

    In cold weather people ride much less, especially at night. I think.. so bikes get stuck from the daytime flow with less returns.

    been citibiking for about 2 years, trends are usually less bikes available in the summer because people want the “nice day joy ride” but fall/winter, more bikes available. This is for stations in manhattan from my experience.
