Citi Bike® and Healthfirst are offering first-timers free rides!

Every New Yorker should have the opportunity to take part in the “bike boom” as a safe, reliable way to commute, stay healthy, and explore their neighborhoods while continuing to social distance.

That’s why we’re relaunching First Ride Free, presented by Healthfirst. Starting Saturday, September 25, we’ll offer one free 30-minute Classic bike ride to Citi Bike first-timers! For two weeks, anyone who's never tried Citi Bike before will have an opportunity to redeem a ride and take a trip through the city*.

The promo code can also be used to unlock an ebike at $0.18/minute (more info about our ebikes here).

How do I sign up?

Only brand-new users of Citi Bike and the app can sign up for this promotion.

  2. Follow the instructions to complete your registration.

We’re hoping every New Yorker who has never ridden a Citi Bike will get to experience the benefits of bike share.
