NEW YORK, NY- September 10, 2013 - The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity at Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business, in partnership with The Sustainability Practice Network (SPN), is hosting a panel discussion to explore the short and long term implications of the New York City CitiBike program.

Launched in May and largely sponsored by Citi, the program features roughly 6000 bicycles and 600 docking stations in Midtown, Lower Manhattan and West Brooklyn. With plans to expand further north and east, panelists from the fields of business, transportation, academia, urban planning, environmentalism and other areas will come together to discuss this program's financial future, how it will affect the real estate market, and whether this will lead to an increase in bicycle commuting nationwide.

Panelists include Justin Ginsburg, the Project Director of Alta Bicycle Share; Charles Komanoff of Komanoff Energy Associates; Jon Sellman, VP of Marketing and Advertising of Citi, CitiBike Share Lead; and John Orcott, Policy Director, NYC Department of Transportation (others to be announced).
