Who are Bike Angels?

Bike Angels are Citi Bike members that earn rewards and help improve the Citi Bike system, just by riding a bike! We work hard to manage bike availability, and we understand it's frustrating when a station has too few bikes or docks. That’s why we we believe our riders should be rewarded for trips they take that help their fellow riders. Sign up is open to all Citi Bike annual members!

How to earn points

The dynamic Bike Angels map online or in the Citi Bike app shows which stations are awarding Bike Angel points for picking up or dropping off a bike. In many cases, earning points is as simple as starting your trip from a station that’s near your "home station" or docking a short walk from your destination. Points earn rewards like gift cards, membership extensions, unique Citi Bike keys and more.


Pick-up Stations

Pick-up stations

Upward “pick-up” arrows mark the stations full of bikes or likely to need docks soon. Take a bike from these stations and you’ll earn points.

Drop-off Stations

Pick-up stations

Downward "drop-off” arrows indicate stations in need of bikes.

Example trips

Pick-Up Station → Neutral Station = 1 pt
Neutral Station → Drop-Off Station = 1 pt
Pick-Up Station Drop-Off Station = 2 pts

Tips for earning points

1. Only trips that:

• Start at a pick-up or neutral station and

• End at a drop-off or neutral station will earn points

Station points "freeze" when you start your trip, so the points you'll earn won't change mid-trip!
