The DOT has announced 200 JUMP Bikes and 200 Citi Bikes are now available through either the Citi Bike App or through the Uber App.
The bikes are pedal-assisted, meaning the 250-watt motor will help Bronxites over the boroughs hills and folks with bad knees complete their journey.
The cost for either bike is $2 for a 30-minute ride and you can lock it up at just about anywhere.
