Ratings and Reviews
My newest form of therapy
For years I’ve debated purchasing a bike. Not just to get around the city with ease, or to forego the hustle ‘n bustle of the MTA & cabs, but to explore areas of the city that I had not explored in the decade-plus that I’ve lived in Manhattan. With CitiBike, I can enjoy the best of the city.
Now that it’s getting warmer, I take a ride from the gym to the river every morning. It’s therapeutic, gets my blood flowing AND it’s convenient. There are docking stations everywhere I turn. The ease of using the app makes for an added bonus.
I recommend to anyone that wants to take control of their commute, explore the city at your own pace, or just want to break up the monotony of working out within the four walls of a gym (sorry, Equinox - still love you!).
Oh! Small apartment? Who cares? You don’t have to store it. Win. Win. Win. Win.
Tip: check to make sure the gear shifts & both breaks work to your liking. Also, seat before unlocking the bike of your choice, push down (hard!) on the seat to make sure it securely locks into place.
Not for commuting
This is less a review of an app than of the program in general, so take that as you will. I work in midtown and it’s impossible to dock a bike in the morning and impossible to get a bike for the evening commute home. I find myself wandering from station to station, chasing shadows, hoping the one or two bikes the app tells me are left are still available by the time I get there. It’s yet to happen. I’ve walked two minutes to a station that said it had 8 bikes to find it empty. There’s a “valet station” near my workplace—and this is more a legitimate criticism of the app—and three times now the app told me a valet was available only for me to fine the station as barren and neglected as my heart. I bought an annual pass and feel like a fool. You should try it out before committing. I won’t be using it to commute—only for the odd fun ride, which is probably what it’s best for anyway.
Citi Bike is Revolutionary
I have lived in the city for 15 years. Traveling on the MTA and becoming increasingly discouraged as time has commenced during my time here with all the price hikes, yet conditions in the subways have not improved. I have only been a member of Citi Bike little yet the freedom it has provided has been revolutionary. A viable, fun, transformational - in that it also serves as an excellent source exercise which releases happy endorphins that flood your system(!!!) - form of transportation! I look forward to seeing how much money it saves me! And even if it doesn’t save me - even if not the change/trade off in what I get from being a Citi Bike member will be worth it!
Developer Response ,
What a testimonial! I couldn't agree more-- the fun, the endorphins, not to mention the savings. I'm with you all the way. Thank you so much for this review. It means so much to the whole team here to get feedback like this.
