Do I need to leave a deposit to rent a bike?
No, you are not required at this time to leave a deposit to rent bike(s) unless you are returning the bike to a different location as part of our bike network membership program. You will be required to leave your own valid drivers license or state or country issued official ID in order to rent bikes. You may also leave a copy of your passport if you do not have an appropriate drivers license or ID. Any ID is returned and any copies of passport will be destroyed in your presence, when you return the bikes. If you wish to return the bikes to a different Bike Rent NYC location, you must make arrangements in advance with the purchase of a bike network membership daily pass for $5. You will also be required to leave a $100 cash or credit card security deposit per bike, which will be returned to you when you return the bike(s) to another location.
