On Election day you can ride around NYC for free. For the first time, the popular five-year-old bikeshare will offer a free Day Pass on Election Day, Citi Bike officials and NYC Department of Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg announced Monday.
To unlock the free Day Pass, which usually costs $12 for a full day of bike access, New Yorkers need only to input the code BIKETOVOTE in the Citi Bike app. You will receive free unlimited 30-minute trips for 24 hours.
Motivate‘s bike-share services in Chicago, Boston, Washington, Minneapolis, Portland, Oregon, Columbus, Ohio and the San Francisco Bay Area will also offer free rides on Election Day. You need to use promo code BIKETOVOTE.
A lack of transportation to a polling place was a reason 29 percent of young voters didn’t cast ballots in the 2016 election.
