On August 20, 2018, we introduced pedal-assist electric bicycles to the Citi Bike fleet! Riders will have access to a limited number of shared pedal-assist electric bikes in the existing service area, in addition to our existing Citi Bike fleet (12,000 bikes and counting).
Our electric bikes are available to all members and casual rides from the app or via your bike key, and they are included in your membership for no additional fee. You’ll see these bikes in the same docks and at the same stations as our “Classic” Citi Bikes. To activate the electric assist, just press the "power" button before you start riding (make sure your bike isn't moving when you press). When you're finished, drop your bike off at any Citi Bike station.
With a top speed of 18mph, Citi Bike is helping make cycling effortless, allowing you to sit back and enjoy yourself, experiencing all that surrounds your ride. Open up your app and locate a lightning bolt nearest you.
