Citi Bike Equity & Community Engagement

Reflecting on our mission to increase bikeshare ridership and transportation equity throughout NYC’s underrepresented and low-income communities in 2022.

Year at a glance: our community impact in 2022

At Citi Bike, transportation equity means increasing access, comfort, and usage of our bikeshare programs within historically underserved communities. To do this, our Community Engagement team works in collaboration with advocacy groups, nonprofits, local government, community leaders, and neighborhood residents to ensure that Citi Bike is accessible and seen as a valued community resource.

We’ve had an amazing year. Check out the video below to see some of our highlights:
