New York City Bike Share

Bike share provides New Yorkers with a convenient and affordable 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 cheap, 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 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. Citi Bikes can be unlocked from one station and returned to any other station in the system, making the program ideal for short, one way trips. A wide range of people use the program for a variety of trips – getting across town, traveling in neighborhoods with few transit options, shortening commuting times, and exploring the city. Citi Bike has had more than 50 million trips since its launch in 2013. As Mayor de Blasio has said, “Citi Bike has become part of our public transportation system".

On December 15th, NYC DOT released a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) seeking opinions, research, and knowledge to evaluate the feasibility of new dockless models for bike share service in areas of New York City not served by Citi Bike. In addition the RFEI seeks information, expertise, equipment, and software from the industry to potentially pilot dockless bike share in NYC. The City will continue to support and strengthen Citi Bike, while investigating new and developing technologies to complement its existing service.
