Mayor De Blasio annouces $1 million commitment from Citi, MasterCard to extend Citi Bike Critical Workforce Membership Program
Today, Mayor Bill de Blasio, NYC DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg, and Lyft announced that Citi and Mastercard have partnered to commit $1 million to significantly grow the Citi Bike Critical Workforce Membership Program, making memberships longer and available to more workers.
More than 5,500 first-responder, healthcare, and transit workers have joined the program since it began offering a free month of Citi Bike rides in March. Now, the program will include full-year annual memberships and expand its benefits to include workers at critical food-related non-profits, as well as essential City of New York employees. The deadline for joining this new program has also been extended from April 30 to May 31.
