If you purchased a pass via the Citi Bike mobile app or you're an annual member who has chosen to use mobile ride codes instead of a bike key, you can unlock bikes directly from the app. Open up the Citi Bike mobile app, tap the closest station market, and tap "Unlock a bike." A 5-digit ride code will appear – enter it into the keypad on the dock next to an available bike to unlock it.
