Citi Bike – An Overview
The official Citi Bike App is your co-pilot for biking adventures in the city. From bike locations and real-time availability, to route planning and even where to get the best latté, you’ll have all the info you need to unlock the possibilities of New York.
Pull up the app and see up-to-the-minute bike availability. Search station locations and addresses, to find the nearest bike or dock. Save your favorite stations, and know the situation right away at your usual spots.
See info about your most recent ride, and all-time riding history. Know how long you’ve had a bike out with an accurate trip timer, and see confirmation of your completed trip after you’ve docked.
Pick a destination and we’ll show you where to pick up and dock your bike. Need a route suggestion? Tap a station pin or location and the app will sniff out the best way to your destination.
Want even more places to explore with your Citi Bike? We’ve partnered with The New York Times’s The Scoop app, to provide listings and recommendations of restaurants, coffee shops and destinations and events for you to discover. Just be on the lookout for icons near you to see what new places just made the A-list.
You know the pros when you see ‘em. In one swift motion, the phone emerges, the bike releases from the dock and before you can even blink, they’re riding off into the sunset. It’s beautiful. But not everyone is a pro. We wanted to help the newbies unlock a bike a little faster, so we built a slick animation on the Ride Code screen highlighting exactly where to enter your code so you can unlock and get going. One small step for man, a giant leap for all of bikerkind.
