Friday, June 27 at 6pm: No CitiBikes (What's New?)

TGIF!  The end of the work week would be a great time to take CitiBike out for a spin...if there were any bikes at my local station West 54th St and 9th Ave :(

Tuesday, June 24 at 9:50am: Why is CitiBike adding bikes to a station that's almost full?

The CitiBike stations at West 54th St. and 9th, West 52nd St. and 9th and West 52nd. St. and 8th are empty:

Now, I had always thought that the always-full station at Broadway and 52nd was full because morning commuters were docking their CitiBikes there.  But this morning I found a rebalancer ADDING more bikes to this station:

Why is CitiBike not using rebalancers to add bikes to stations that are empty?

Monday, June 23 at 9:40am: No CitiBikes at W54/9 and W52/9 and Station at W52/8 is broken

The CitiBike stations at West 54th St. and 9th Ave and West 52nd St. and 9th Ave. are empty during the end of the morning rush (as usual)...

...while the more reliable 8th Ave. station at 52nd St. is broken:

You may not be able to tell, but all these bikes have red lights.

Thursday, June 12 at 10:30am: No CitiBikes at 54/9, 52/9, 52/8, 49/8 while 49/Broadway almost full

This morning there are no CitiBikes at the West 54th St. and 9th, 52nd and 9th and 52nd and 8th stations.  Though the map says there is 1 bike at 48th b/w 8th and 9th, the dock won't release it.  I needed go get a bike from my 5th choice station today.

The Broadway and 49th St. station is almost full. With CitiBike making more of an effort to rebalance, why isn't it doing any rebalancing in Hell's Kitchen, which desperately needs it?
