After the acquisition of non-profit operator Motivate by Lyft, Citibike announced a $100 million expansion. In 2019, Citibike will add 4,000 pedal assist electric bikes (e-bikes) to the fleet, which will comprise one-third of the fleet. The system will also add 13 stations. The e-bikes can dock at the same stations as the regular pedal bikes. A $2 per trip surcharge is added for most users, and $0.50 for reduced fare customers.
