CitiBike App shows misleading graphics

Has this happened to you?  The CitiBike app shows pin graphic with a little dark blue at the bottom, indicating that there are a few bikes at a station.  You walk there, only to discover that the graphic was wrong - the app knew that the station had 0 bikes (confirmed when you tap the pin) but was displaying the pin with a dark blue tip anyway.

The dark blue tip on the pin suggests that there are a few bikes at the CitiBike station, but tapping it reveals that the station is empty

The harsh reality: the station is empty

Is it so hard for the app not do display misleading graphics?
