PARK SLOPE — It could soon be possible to ride Citi Bike to the Whole Foods in Gowanus.

The Department of Transportation on Thursday unveiled its list of proposed Citi Bike stations slated to roll out throughout Community Board 6's area, including docking locations in Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Red Hook, the Columbia Street Waterfront District and parts of Boerum Hill.

The 62 new stations, which are expected to arrive next year, are part of a citywide expansion of the Citi Bike service that will double its fleet to 12,000 from 6,000 bikes. DOT came up with the list of proposed docking station locations after getting input from locals.

CB6's transportation committee unanimously approved the DOT's proposed docking stations and requested the agency return after the installation is complete to update the committee.

Notable locations in Park Slope and Gowanus include:

► Both the Park Slope Food Co-op on Union Street and Seventh Avenue and the Whole Foods in Gowanus on Third Street and Third Avenue would have docking stations nearby.

► Both of Park Slope's YMCA branches, on Ninth Street and Sixth Avenue and 15th Street and Seventh Avenue, would have docking stations nearby.

► DOT also wants to install docking stations near Prospect Park along Prospect Park West and near Bartel-Pritchard Square, and is working with the Department of Parks and Recreation to finalize these locations.
