Hoboken Terminal Citi Bike valet service returns May 6

The City of Hoboken today announced the return of Citi Bike valet service at Hoboken Terminal, in partnership with Lyft, the bike share service’s owner and operator, prioritizing accessibility and convenience for commuters.  

The service, which will resume on May 6, aims to improve residents' journeys to and from the terminal, particularly during peak hours, by eliminating the hassle of finding vacant docking space or a bicycle around Hoboken Terminal during rush hours.

Through the program, valet staff will ensure the availability of dock space and bikes at the Hoboken Terminal - River Street docking station on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The valet service is free for all Citi Bike riders. The docking station is located on River Street between Hudson Place and Newark Street.

The relaunch of the valet service comes less than a year after the City added a new docking station at the intersection of River Street and First Street that expanded dock capacity by 19 percent in the Hoboken Terminal area. Citi Bike ridership in Hoboken surged 20 percent over the last year.

“The return of the valet service will ensure that anyone who uses Citi Bike to get to and from Hoboken Terminal during the morning rush hour does not have to worry about docking availability,” said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “It’s the latest way we are committed to strengthening our sustainable transportation options for residents and visitors. Thank you to Lyft for working with my administration to reinstate this program.”  

"Hoboken residents continue to ride Citi Bike more and more each year,” said Patrick Knoth, General Manager at Citi Bike. “We're excited to offer a valet at our Hoboken Terminal station to ensure that riders have bikes and docks available where they need them most."

Lyft will monitor valet usage throughout the week and may adjust hours based on demand, so riders are encouraged to check the Citi Bike app for current valet availability on weekdays.

Citi Bike expanded into Hoboken in May 2021 through a partnership with Jersey City. The interconnected, regional program allows members to easily travel between Jersey City, Hoboken, and New York City.  

With over 1,000 residents enrolled as members of Citi Bike, and access to over 21,000 bikes, including e-bikes, at nearly 1,300 stations, this combined program stands as the largest in the United States.

Since its launch, Citi Bike has facilitated over 1.14 million rides originating in Hoboken, contributing to reduced carbon emissions. In 2023 alone, Hoboken Citi Bike trips led to the avoidance of approximately 47 metric tons of carbon emissions.

Lyft and the City of Hoboken offer Hoboken Housing Authority residents and SNAP recipients are eligible for discounted memberships that cost $5 per month or $60 annually. Full-price membership costs $219.99 annually.
