A few more tips on earning points

  • Station status and score take into account current fill level and the future flow of bikes.
  • The scores on the map update every 15 minutes, on the hour and 15, 30, and 45 minutes past.
  • If a Bike Angel is "gaming" the system (e.g. biking back and forth between two stations) these points will be vacated.
  • You will still earn points on qualifying trips for rides you take in the Lyft app when you connect your Citi Bike membership.
