5. PLAN YOUR ROUTE
While it might sound fun to ignore your map and just ride by the seat of your pants, you probably won't be too happy if you stray too far away from a Citi Bike
station and are unable to return your bike on time. Remember, daily and weekly access pass holders need to dock their bikes every 30 minutes and annual members need to dock every 45 minutes. If you don't dock within the allotted time, you'll be charged overage fees
, so it's in your best interest to plan our your trip in advance using the Citi Bike app
or this online map
so that you can dock your bike accordingly (you can always dock once and then take out another bike to continue riding).
Annual members: After the initial 45 minutes, it's an additional $2.50 for the following half hour, $6.50 for the next half hour and $9 for every half hour after that.
Daily and weekly pass holders: After the initial 30 minutes, it's an additional $4 for the second half hour, $9 for the third half hour, and $12 for every half hour after that
