The Citi Bike program is designed to give locals and visitors an additional transportation option for getting around the city. This solar-powered bike sharing system provides a fleet of specially designed bikes that are sturdy, efficient, and convenient. Each bike can be retrieved or returned at any one of the many docking stations throughout the city. They are available for use 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You can rent bikes at an hourly rate or get a ‘Bike Share Membership’.
For frequent riders, you can take advantage of the Bike Sharing Membership. A concept that has shown success in European cities like Paris and Barcelona, the Bike Sharing Membership allows you check out and return any bike from any station, all day long. The first 30 minutes of every ride are included for free. The 30 minute trip clock resets each time you arrive at a station/destination, so you get unlimited 30 minute rides at no extra charge. When docked, the bike is then available for the next person to use. Since its bike “sharing,” you do not keep the bike in your possession for the whole day.

Bicycle repair stations are context-sensitive stands that include all the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat tire to adjusting brakes and derailleurs, and are designed to handle all types of bicycles. The air pump includes a pressure gauge which ensures proper inflation pressures. Hanging the bike from the hanger arms allows the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making necessary adjustments. Users can easily scan the code on the station with their smartphone to access a variety of tutorials on how to perform bike repairs.
