BROOKLYN — Lyft has integrated Citibike into their rideshare app, giving more users the option to get around the borough on two wheels or four, though all the pedal assist bikes have been taken out of commission until the fall to improve the brakes.
Now, Lyft users can reserve a Citi Bike or a car on the rideshare company’s app. Customers can also check bike availability and traffic conditions on either transportation mode. In addition, the company is launching a new Citi Bike page on the Lyft website.
The app expansion comes a week after Citi Bike had their busiest weekend with 145,000 trips between May 18 – May 19.
In November, Lyft announced a $100 million investment into the bike share program. The Citi Bike expansion will span 35 miles providing nearly 40,000 additional bikes throughout New York City.
Customers are free to continue using the Citi Bike app.
