You can return your bike to any station with an open dock – you don't have to bring it back to the station where you picked it up, making Citi Bike ideal for one-way trips. Find available docks on the mobile app or System Map.
To dock your bike, line up the triangle located at the front of the bike with the dock and insert your bike gently but firmly (don't slam it!). Hold it in place until the light on the dock turns green to make sure it's locked.
If you’re having trouble docking a bike or not getting a green light, please try a different dock. Make sure you’re pushing your bike all the way into the dock.
Enable push notifications on the Citi Bike mobile app to get a confirmation message when your bike is docked properly.
