Citi Bike offering single rides for $3 during April

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Curious to try Citi Bike, but afraid of commitment?

The ride-sharing bike service is now offering single rides across its 12,000 bike system.

During the month of April, you can pay $3 for 30 minutes of bike access before committing to a membership.

Users still have to go through the Citi Bike app.

A year-long membership costs $169 for unlimited rides.

One-day and three-day passes provide unlimited 30-minute trips during these periods and are available for $12 and $24 respectively.

Riders of Citi Bike Jersey City will also have access to the $3 rides.

"From Astoria to Midtown or Williamsburg to the Lower East Side, we are bringing Citi Bike to even more New Yorkers this spring -one 30-minute trip at a time," said Kris Sandor, General Manager of Citi Bike NYC. "It's no secret that New Yorkers are always on the go, and with the single ride option, we are delivering a flexible new way for people to get where they need to be."
