Pricing for the system:

$95 per year
-Riders under 45 minutes: free
-Rides over 45 minutes: depends

$25 per week
-Rides under 30 minutes: free
-Rides over 30 minutes: depends

$10 a day
-Rides under 30 minutes: free

The system will start with about 6,000 bikes at 300 stations, in Manhattan below Central Park and in northwest Brooklyn. The city’s Department of Transportation hopes to eventually expand the program to include 600 stations and 10,000 bikes.
