新冠疫情

特殊时期,推荐 Citi Bike 等美国共享单车服务

疫情被控制,纽约市基本确定会从5月15日后,逐步复工复产,但是相信很多人会担心每天上下班搭乘公共交通风险很大。纽约市MTA已经宣布所有地铁每天凌晨1 AM 到纽约4 AM 进行消毒打扫,配合纽约警察NYPD,对「住在」地铁的无家可归的人进行规劝,让他们搬到庇护所,但面对每天搭乘地铁的巨大人流量,依旧会让人提心吊胆。

在这里向各位读者推荐,在纽约市可以考虑使用共享单车 Citi Bike ,现在共享单车服务范围已经从曼哈顿逐步拓展到皇后区(长岛市,LIC)和布鲁克林,还有靠近哈德逊河的新泽西的泽西市。大家可以参考下面地图,官网和手机 app 上面的地图,实时显示每个停车点中空余自行车数量。

价格

Citi Bike共享单车计划的价格分为4档,参见下面表格。为了防止骑行者长时间霸占同一辆自行车,增加自行车的流动性,运营方特地增加每次骑行时间限制,如果使用者需要长距离使用,可以预先选定几个自行车更换点,保证每次骑行时间不超时。Citi Bike 项目在2018年被 Lyft 收购,加入LYFT PINK 会员($19.99/月),每个月可以获得3次30分钟的免费骑行。

价格骑行限制超时费用
Single Ride,单次骑行$3/次30分钟超时后,每分钟$0.15
Day Pass,1日票$12/24小时24小时内无限次使用,
但每次不超过30分钟
每次超时后,每分钟$0.15,
超时30分钟后,每15分钟$4
3-Day Pass,3日票$24/72小时72小时内无限次使用,
但每次不超过30分钟
每次超时后,每分钟$0.15,
超时30分钟后,每15分钟$4

使用

每个停车点都有一个类似电话亭的机器,民众可以再上面进行操作,上面有各国语音,方便各国游客使用。操作如同地铁站里面的MTA机器,最后使用者会获取五位数代码,然后去自行车左边手把下面输入代码,完成自行车的解锁。建议大家在付费前,检查一下停车站中的自行车,座椅高低调节,刹车,脚踏板等等。归还自行车的时候,请确认自行车前轮完全卡入停车坞,锁住。

使用年票的骑手,会收到Citi Bike的一把塑料钥匙,每次使用,插入自行车左边的机器,完成解锁。

曼哈顿很多街道是没有自行车专用道的,每次骑行,建议骑手使用 Google Maps中自行车导航,注意骑行安全。纽约市府发布了中文版骑行指南,参见这里

骑行装备

根据纽约市府的骑行指南,如果是夜间骑行,需要使用白色头灯(照前方),红色尾灯(提醒后方车辆),如果骑行时候背着双肩包的话,可以购买购买挂在背包上的尾灯,防止遗失。
