New York City Bike Share

Bike share provides New Yorkers with a convenient, affordable, and sustainable option for getting around the City. The majority of all transportation trips made in the city are shorter than two miles, a good distance for cycling. Bike share gives New Yorkers a fun, easy, and efficient option for these trips by providing access to sturdy bikes without having to worry about storage or maintenance.

New York City’s current bike share system, Citi Bike, is a public-private partnership between the City of New York, represented by NYC DOT, and Motivate, a private company that owns and operates bike share systems around the country. With over 60 million trips since launch, bike share has proven its popularity and as Mayor de Blasio said, “Citi Bike has become part of our public transportation system".

New to the bike share industry is dockless bike share, a network of publicly available bikes unlocked using a smart phone. Dockless bike share may allow the City to expand bike share at potentially lower capital costs and on a faster timeline to areas of the city not currently served by the Citi Bike system.

To determine if this new bike share model is a good fit for New York City, DOT is holding dockless bike share pilots in four areas of the City; the Rockaways in Queens, the North Shore of Staten Island, the Fordham Area in the Bronx, and Coney Island in Brooklyn. The pilots are designed to be small in scale and short term in order to accurately evaluate the dockless service model. For more information about Dockless bike share in NYC and to provide feedback visiting the dockless pilot feedback map.
