Citi Bike is expanding deeper into Astoria, with the bike-share company looking to install docking stations in the Ditmars-Steinway section of Astoria all the way east toward East Elmhurst.

The company is soliciting feedback on where to install the docks and has opened a portal for riders to provide their input, the NYC Dept. of Transportation announced on twitter today.

The public can submit their ideas up until Sept. 25.

The stations will be part of a major Citi Bike expansion that will bring docks to Sunnyside, Maspeth, Elmhurst, Jackson Heights, and Corona by 2023.

The expansion will double the current service area by 35 square miles and triple the number of bikes to 40,000.

Citi Bike first came to Queens in 2015 with docking stations in Long Island City. The program was then expanded into Astoria and the far reaches of Long Island City in 2017.
