PIPPIN, AFTER MIDNIGHT & More Partner with Citi Bike for 'Bike to Broadway' Program

PIPPIN, AFTER MIDNIGHT & More Partner with Citi Bike for 'Bike to Broadway' ProgramNew York City Bike Share, the operators of Citi Bike, is teaming up with seven Broadway shows, from Tony-winning hits to brand new blockbusters for BIKE TO BROADWAY. Each month from March through September Citi Bike members will have access to a different show deal, ticket giveaways, and show-themed events or activities. And each of these shows is encouraging their patrons to use Citi Bike to get to the show.

According to the Broadway League tourists made up over 66% of Broadway theater-goers in recent years. A Citi Bike 24-hour pass, available online via the Citi Bike gift store or at any Citi Bike station kiosk, allows these visitors to unlock all that New York has to offer, see more, do more and still get to the show on time. There are five Citi Bike docking stations immediately surrounding Times Square, making Citi Bike a fun, easy way to get to Broadway.

BIKE TO BROADWAY kicks off this month with ONCE, winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Citi Bike members can purchase tickets for as low as $49. ONCE is only steps away from Citi Bike's W 45 St & 8 Ave station.

Upcoming deals will be listed on Citi Bike's Offers page and announced via social media. Two free show tickets will be raffled to Citi Bike riders every month, and Citi Bike will collaborate with theatres to offer show-themed events and activities, like a ONCE-inspired ride route highlighting New York City's best spots to hear Irish music.
