The easiest way to purchase a Day Pass or 3-Day Pass is through the Citi Bike mobile app. Then follow these mobile app instructions for buying a pass and unlocking a bike. Download the app for iPhone or Android.
Passes can also be purchased at any Citi Bike kiosk, found at the end of each Citi Bike station. See the kiosk instructions to buy a pass and unlock a bike. See the System Map to find a station near you.
You can use any major credit or debit card to purchase a Citi Bike pass – insert your card into the kiosk when prompted on the touchscreen.
Please note: if you purchase a key with your pass, the key cannot be associated with an annual membership automatically. If you'd like to associate the bike key with an annual membership, please send us message or chat with one of our customer service agents. If your casual pass expires and you buy a new pass using the same credit card, you can choose to add it to your bike key.
At this time, Apple Pay and Prepaid cards are not a valid form of payment.
