Citi Bike Fees
In July 2012, North America's largest public bike share system, now called Citi Bike, will launch in New York City.
“The idea behind bike share is simple: give people one more way to get around town faster,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “We are bringing the system to New York at no cost to taxpayers because of the commitment of a great New York institution: Citi Group. The new Citi Bikes will be an affordable, entirely new, 24/7 transportation network that will help extend connectivity from subway stops, make places like our growing number of waterfronts easier to get to and simply making getting around town a little easier.”
The system with 10,000 bikes and 600 bike docking stations will provide a new, affordable, 24/7 transportation option for New Yorkers in parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn. As title sponsor of the system agreement, Citi Group branding will be displayed on the system’s bikes and bike docking stations.
An annual membership costs $95, making the system affordable, less than the cost of a single monthly unlimited Metro Card in NYC. Members must be at least 16 years old and are entitled to unlimited use of the system for individual bike trips of up to 45 minutes. Members using the Citi Bikes for longer periods will be charged a graduated fee starting at $4.00 for an additional 1/2 hour.
There will also be options for day and weekly memberships, $9.95 for 24 hours and $25.00 for 7 days access, allowing tourists and occassional users to also access the system.
“From its yellow taxis to its landmark bridges to the Staten Island Ferry, New York is a city of transportation icons, and these signature blue Citi Bikes will be New Yorkers’ newest transportation choice,” said Commissioner Sadik-Khan. “This exciting sponsorship will help extend the reach of our transportation network at no cost to taxpayers.”
