App Reviews

  • Not for commuting

    By citifool
    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.
  • My newest form of therapy

    By Gilbert Eats 2 Much
    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. BIKE SAFELY!
  • Citi Bike is Revolutionary

    By JoshuaLDixon
    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!
  • Nice new features, easy to use, but ...slow...

    By ggtgevyggscybjgfed
    I upgraded from a version of the app that was a few months old so I don’t know what I missed in between. What I do see, though, is that it takes a very long time to zoom and scroll the app, and when you’re out there trying to get somewhere quickly and want to find a bike or dock and get going, this is very frustrating. It also seems that the Angels point designations on the map are sometimes way behind (it appears that I am often seeing the points from the last time I used the app, even if that was hours ago). This also makes it difficult to use. Given that this is an app supporting a transit system, speed really should be a key priority.
  • Help!

    By carmz457
    I see the comments dating back to November of last year about needing the “plan your route” back on the app. Do you have any updates on when this feature will be back?? It is very much missed. Also, I’ve noticed that searching for locations has been glitchy. I’ve searched for really well known places (that show up fine in google maps) and get zero results on this app. Not sure what the issue is, but makes it very frustrating since I had to go to Google, get the exact address and then head back to citibike app. The locations were: Century 21 Department store (I believe there are 3 in the city), West Elm (again multiple locations in nyc), Silvercup Studios (there are three main locations).
  • A step-bk update-I care enough to vent out my criticism

    By Bikie Angel
    The enthusiasm of the whole crew at citibike(tech, the ever-improving ground crew...) and their prompt responses online deserve five stars in every way. As I read through the previous replies- I too am looking forward to the “plan a route” going out in full 4th in May. When ppl complain and want to voice concerns they write it here but seldom do they take time to express their appreciation... Ps Hope someday individuals could have the possibility of applying for an extended riding session-10,15mins without being penalized if going over 45 for like 30 seconds.
  • It’s Horrible--still

    By lou loo
    Isn't it obvious? You want to know if there are bikes at the dock. Then you want to put in an address where you're going to be riding. Then, you want the best route. None of this happens on this app. And most of the time the information is inaccurate as far as number of bikes AND NOW addresses. I understand things change quickly in the city but at least get the map part right--- it's so infuriating! NEW~ the plan your trip feature is back, but won’t recognize addresses in the city- namely where I work, which is a major, well-know publisher. The other irritating feature is that the list of close-to additional options underneath gives addresses in New Jersey and OTHER states(!) Why? Shouldn’t that list be populated with NYC addresses first? It’s so frustrating.
  • Unbelievable, magnificent, stupendous (choose any synonym you like)

    By Joeynz1975
    I used to pay $120 a month to ride the subway as my commute to work. Now, I can ride back and forth for only $60 a year through my company’s reduced rate. I now bike 8 Miles a day, and if I don’t do any other exercise throughout the whole day, I still feel good about my activity for the day. It gets me to work in the same time (or less) than my two subway trains might take. All the bikes work great, some are better than others but I’ve never had a serious issue with a bike. Some of handlebar grips slide over making the bell not work properly. Also, even though I ride up and down big slopes on the streets and over the Brooklyn bridge, I find that only 3rd gear is useful. I’ve tried 2nd gear going up difficult hills and it’s not strong enough. That being said, I can’t imagine anyone in their right mind ever switching to the first speed.
  • Years later, still no account access

    By jdhinshej
    This app want you to log in but provides no information about your account. Want to see your trip history? App can’t do it. Go to the website. Want to see your last trip? App can’t do it. Go to the website. Want to see your Bike Angels points total? App can’t do it. Go to the website. If you’re not going to build account management into the app they very least you could do is provide a WebView with access to the website. This app is good as a station locator, but that’s basically all it does. And you can get that from the website just as easily. Why even have an app?
  • Functional and elegant

    By richmintz
    This is an excellent and versatile app which I use every day. Trip planning functionality is good (and takes into account which docks have bikes available), availability info is always current (and updates automatically), user interface is simple to understand. I only wish full trip history was available within the app as it is on the web, but other than that I’m very satisfied.
