Would 'free' Citi Bike rentals sway you on Lyft's Pink subscription service? that is what the Uber rival is testing with a replacement pilot program in big apple City.

Starting next week, select Lyft customers -- including people who are yet to undertake Pink -- are going to be offered two-month access to Citi Bike's blue two-wheelers. 

The experiment will include unlimited 'classic' Citi Bike rides with a 45-minute cap, which should be long enough to travel between park and suspension bridge. E-bike enthusiasts, meanwhile, will get a 10-cent-per-minute discount during the trial. If you begin an electrifying trip outside of Manhattan, Lyft will cap the primary 45 minutes at $2.

The ride-hailing company launched Lyft Pink as a replacement for its All-Access Plan last October. It costs $19.99 per month and offers subscribers a 15 per cent discount on all car rides throughout the US. additionally, members get airport priority pickups and -- more importantly within the current climate -- three 'free' rides on a 'classic' Lyft bike or scooter, capped at the half-hour. In select markets, the corporate also offers three e-bikes unlocks and discounted rates in NY City and port of entry. 

Adding Citi Bike's fleet to the combo could increase Pink signups and persuade some more people to ditch cars and mass transit until the pandemic is over.
