Bike Path Program

The Bike Path Program is open to all New York City residents who are justice-involved, veterans, and non-college bound youth interested in working as a bicycle mechanic for Citi Bike. Participants must complete a 4-week bicycle maintenance course led by an experienced Bike New York mechanic.  We begin teaching basic mechanical skills, progress onto the restoration of a bicycle, and end with hands-on experience completing repairs on a fleet of decommissioned Citi Bikes.

In 2022, approximately 65 participants graduated and were hired as mechanics for Citi Bike. The Bike Path Program has changed the course of many lives for the better by providing training, stability, and the possibility of a new career.
