- Get Started
Purchase a 24-Hour or 7-Day Pass from any Citi Bike station. A $101 security hold will be placed on your credit or debit card for every pass you purchase (you may purchase up to two Passes per card).
Frequent rider? Join Citi Bike by signing up for an Annual Membership!
- Unlock a Bike
24-Hour and 7-Day Pass holders can print their ride code at the kiosk after they buy a Pass. Type the code into the 3-digit keypad on any dock with an available bike.
Annual Members simply dip their own unique key into the key slot at any dock with an available bike.
- Adjust for Fit
You can easily adjust the seat post up or down for a more comfortable ride. Remember your seat height setting for your future rides by referring to the markings on the side of the seat post. Throw your bag into the front basket, strap it down and you're ready to go!
- Keep an Eye on the Clock
24-Hour and 7-Day Pass holders may ride for 30 minutes per trip without incurring any overtime fees. Annual Members have 45 minutes to ride per trip before incurring overtime fees. (For more information, please visit our Pricing page.)
- Unlimited Rides
Ride as many times as you want during your Access Pass or Annual Membership period. Keep pedaling!
- Subsequent Rides
24-Hour and 7-Day Pass holders must request a new ride code to unlock another bike. Just swipe the same card you used to purchase your pass at the kiosk and a new code will be generated for you (your card will not be charged again).
Annual Members just dip their key to ride again!
Please allow at least two minutes between rides for the system to process your return and prepare for your next trip.
- Choose From Hundreds of Locations
Find locations using a station map or download the Citi Bike app (coming soon!).
Firmly push the bike into the dock and wait to see a green light blink on the dock to confirm it’s been properly locked. Don't leave the bike until you see the green light.
- Station Full?
Select “Request Time Credit” at the kiosk. You will have 15 minutes added to your ride time at no charge. Select "Find Nearby Stations" on the start screen of the kiosk to find a neighboring station with available docks.
