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 Lyft Bikes, a private company that owns and operates bike share systems around the country. With over 70 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".

In partnership with DOT, Citi Bike will add approximately 1,250 bikes and 2,500 docking points in Manhattan and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The process of providing denser coverage is known as "infill", and will involve enlarging existing stations and potentially adding new stations. 

To suggest a new station visit the "Suggest a Station" portal.
