Were you unable to make our Citi Bike Phase 3 community workshops? There is still a way to give us your feedback! Our "Suggest a Station" feedback portal has a map where users can pinpoint places where they think is an appropriate place for a Citi Bike station, as well as areas not suitable for a station. It's suggested that you visit the "Feedback Map Instructions" page first. This page details instructions on how to give the most useful feedback so we can best use your input. This map will be open until mid-November. In addition, please take our Bike Share survey, which helps us understand New Yorkers' current travel habits and how Citi Bike might change those habits. 

Phase 3 of Citi Bike expansion will double the service area and triple the amount of bikes to ~40,000. For more information about Phase 3 in general, please refer to the Mayor's press release.

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 89 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"

Dockless Bike Share Pilot

To help expand bike share in areas outside of the Citi Bike service area, DOT is launching a dokckess bike share pilot in select areas in the outer boroughs. Like Citi Bike, dockless bike share is an easy, affordable mode of transportation allowing users to make trips using sturdy, publicly available bikes. However, dockless bikes do not need stations to operate. Bikes are locked and unlocked using a smartphone app. 

For information on the dockless pilots in the Rockways, Central Bronx, and the North Shore of Staten Island, visit the Dockless Bike Share pilot page.

NYC’s Better Bike Share Partnership

The Better Bike Share Partnership a collaboration between NYC DOT, Citi Bike NYC, NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and led by community-based organization Bed-Stuy Restoration Corporation. the partnership highlights the importance of bike share to communities as a transit option, a tool for strengthening communities and for personal health benefits.
