Lyft Introduces 1,500 eBikes into Fleet
Citi Bike has recently made the decision to grow their immense bicycle fleet with more than 1,500 electric bikes to offer customers a more sleek and modern experience. These new bikes allow Lyft, the company managing the experience to add these units to their already 5,000 bicycle fleet.
Safety and Modern Experiences
“We think about what are features that really allow someone for the first time to ride a bike really easily,” Citi Bike General Manager Laura Fox said.
The bike also includes new “safety features,” the spokesman said — if the bikes detects “anything abnormal,” it will stop functioning. (New York Post, 4/29/2022)
How You Can Enjoy Them
On May 5th, 2022, these new bikes will join the fleet and be ready for customers to enjoy. Not a member? Not a problem! The program allows new customers a 15-day free trial so they can participate from their phone at any of their bike change stations.
