About this app

The official app for Citi Bike, NYC’s bike share system.

Citi Bike consists of a fleet of specially designed, sturdy and durable bikes that are locked into a network of docking stations throughout the city. Our bikes can be unlocked from one station and returned to any other station in the system, making them ideal for one-way trips. Bike share is a greener, healthier way to get around — whether you’re commuting, running errands, meeting friends, or exploring in a new city.
The Citi Bike app gives you access to thousands of bikes in your area — unlock and pay directly from the app and get going.

The Citi Bike app also shows upcoming public transit departures, including MTA subway trains, shuttles, local, limited, & express buses, LIRR commuter rail trains, Metro-North commuter rail trains, PATH rapid transit trains, Bee-Line local & express buses, NYC Ferries, the Staten Island Ferry, the AirTrain JFK, the AirTrain Newark, the Roosevelt Island Tramway, and NJT commuter rail trains, light rail trains, & buses.

Within the app, you can purchase the following Citi Bike passes:

The app has gotten better recently, I'm bumping up my rating one star. There are still problems for users with location turned off: 1. the City Explorer map starts you at latitude/longitude 0/0 in the middle of the ocean. 2. Whenever you exit the profile or the end of ride dialog, the main map always resets to midtown Manhattan. It would be better, when location is off, to reset back to the last station used, which has a higher chance of being useful.

Disappointed and annoyed by a number of things in the app: Would like for it to be easier/clearer how to set up an account before you're ready to start a ride. It's annoying to fumble with credit cards and passwords while standing at a citybike dock running late. I wanted to do this when I was sitting at home and had plenty of time, but couldn't find the option. The account create screens are buggy. The name and DOB screen kept refusing to pull up the keyboard, I had to reset it 3 times to get it to come up. Then it wouldn't let me switch from first name to last name - the text caret was in the last name field, but characters typed went to the first name field instead. Another reset to get around that. The map kept refusing to show the streets and names for half of the area. Scrolling around and zooming didn't fix it. Had to reset the app again. The CitiBike service is mostly fine, but you guys really need to put some more work into this app.

Super convenient and easy. Pretty seamless real world/app interaction. The fee structure is convoluted and misleading, and the app won't let you get a new bike until you review your last ride, super annoying. If you just scan a bike, you're gonna end up paying more than a 24 hour pass if you plan on using it more than 3 times. Of course, in the 24 hour plan, you get charged after 30 minutes, so you're always stopping to switch bikes.
