Redeem at any Citi Bike kiosk (found at the end of each Citi Bike station):

  3. Follow the on-screen instructions

The first 30 minutes of each ride are included with your pass, and you can take as many classic bike rides as you want while your pass is active. If you keep a bike out longer than 30 minutes at a time, extra time fees apply. See the Day Passes page for more details.
