Citi Bike is offering expanded access to bike share through a no-commitment $5/month membership for JCHA residents and SNAP recipients!
Citi Bike is a fun and affordable way to get around the city, and a great alternative to the subway, buses, walking, or taxis. It’s designed for quick trips with convenience in mind and can be especially helpful in getting you where you need to go when traditional public transit options might be limited.
When you become a member, you will have access to thousands of bikes around Jersey City, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. You can take as many rides as you want while your membership is active, and the first 45 minutes of each ride are included in your plan with no extra costs. See usage feesfor longer rides.
There’s no annual commitment for JCHA residents and SNAP recipients. After the first 30 days, you won’t be charged again until you ride again – putting the power of our pricing in your pocket.
To ride again after your initial 30-day membership expires, simply use our mobile phone app to unlock a bike at any station. This will activate your next 30-day membership period for just $5. We don’t auto-renew your membership every 30 days if you don’t ride, so you never have to worry about having to pay for a service you’re not using.
*If you don't have a credit or debit card, visit a participating Community Development Credit Union to open an account.
The first 45 minutes of each ride are included in the monthly membership price. If you keep a bike out for longer than 45 minutes at a time, extra usage fees apply.
