Bike for Business

Offer your employees a convenient transportation option for their commute or getting around NYC.

Citi Bike’s Bike for Business program is an easy way to get your employees where they need to go! Hundreds of workplaces across NYC offer subsidized Annual Memberships to employees as a wellness, transportation, or recreation benefit.

Pricing

Bike for Business memberships include an unlimited number of 45-minute rides in a 12-month period. Pay only for the members of your organization who join through your account. The employees are responsible for any additional usage fees that are incurred – for example, if they choose to ride an ebike or take a trip longer than 45 minutes. More info on additional usage fees for members is available on the pricing page.

FAQs

Employee eligibility

To access an organization’s special rate, employees will sign up using a password protected registration page. For enhanced validation, we can require employees to verify their work-issued email through the registration process.

Verification + cancellation policy

Every time someone joins Citi Bike under a company’s account, the program manager will receive an automatic email notification with the employee’s name and email address. If the new member is ineligible for the benefit, the program manager will have a 72-hour window from receiving the email notification to notify Citi Bike Customer Service.

Employee termination policy

When an employee leaves the company, there is no action required by the program manager. Their Citi Bike annual membership is good for a full year, even if the employee leaves your organization before the subscription is up. You will not receive a refund or prorated amount and the employee will be responsible for their own renewal.

Existing Citi Bike members

Employees that are existing Citi Bike members can take advantage of your organization’s subsidized rate.

  • If an employee signed up for a membership within the past 14 days: We’ll transfer them into your company’s program. Please have the individual reach out to Citi Bike Customer Service for assistance.

  • If the employee has been a Citi Bike member for more than 14 days: They can take advantage of the subsidized rate when their membership comes up for renewal (60 days before expiration) if they are still an active employee at the time of renewal. Follow the renewal instructions.
