It’s a two-way street. As a Bike Angel, you ride bikes from crowded stations to those that are running low on bikes, making the system work better for everyone. And in return, those rebalancing rides will add up to sweet rewards.
Remember to update your app to the latest version on the App Store or Google Play Store.
Rack up points on the daily
Becoming a Bike Angel is easier than you think. Once you sign up and start seeing points on your Citi Bike map, it’ll take just a few seconds of quick math to see how you can make the ride you were already going to take — to work, coffee, yoga in the park — earn you rewards.
Gimme the skinny
Get in: Become a Bike Angel in your Citi Bike app. (Rides from your connected Lyft app will still earn you points.)
Get going: Find a crowded station and grab a bike. Next, spot a station that’s looking low on wheels and needs a Bike Angel to dock a bike ASAP.
Get rewarded: After completing a couple of rebalancing rides, watch the points add up in your Citi Bike account, and look out for an email about redeeming your swag.
What to do with those points
The more you ride, the more cool stuff you can earn. There are fresh rewards waiting for you as you rack up points on a monthly basis and over the life of your membership.
Here's some insider info on how to make your rides more rewarding.
