Three cyclists riding Citi Bike on Allen ST, in Manhattan
COVID-19 & Citi Bike Update

As New York City grapples with the spread of COVID-19, DOT is working closely with Citi Bike to ensure that New Yorkers have a safe and accessible way to move around the City in this difficult time. We know biking is a preferred way to get around for many and our priority is to ensure the health and safety of all New Yorkers during this time.

Here is what DOT and Lyft are doing to ensure your safety as you ride:

  • Increasing cleaning protocols: Citi Bike associates will disinfect high-contact surfaces on bikes each time they arrive at a Citi Bike depot. At the start of each shift, associates will disinfect high-contact surfaces on vans used to transport vehicles.
  • Continue our work by expanding Citi Bike to Upper Manhattan and the South Bronx later this spring
  • Accelerate plans to add more docking stations in the busiest parts of the service area
  • Increased valet capacity by 30% and expanded Bike Angels points
  • Launching the Citi Bike Critical Workforce Membership Program, aimed at providing a free 30-day membership to first-responders, transit workers, and healthcare workers
