NEW YORK — The latest delay of the city’s bike share program is being blamed on damage caused to equipment by the floodwaters of Superstorm Sandy.

The bike share will now launch in May 2013, with 5,500 bikes instead of 10,000 as initially planned, the city’s Department of Transportation said in a news release Friday. The bikes will now roll out first “in the densest and most geographically contiguous parts of the service area” of Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Citi Bike Share, as it is known, failed to launch this past summer as expected because of software glitches.
