Jose is a computer science student at CUNY. He recently bought an annual membership to Citi Bike.

"I live near Brooklyn College, so I take the subway into Manhattan. I also have a job at NYU, so I take a bike between school and work. On my way home, sometimes I ride a Citi Bike over the bridge into Brooklyn, then take the 5 train the rest of the way. It's good for short trips around the city, and since I save subway fare on my trips between school and work I think I'll save a few bucks in the long run."
