Citi Bike riders have pedaled more than 1 million miles in less than four weeks since the program began!
We have over 45,000 annual members and over 55,000 casual members who have used 24-Hour or 7-Day passes to try out Citi Bike.
Of the more than 385,000 Citi Bike rides taken since the May 27 system launch as of yesterday afternoon, more than 161,000 rides occurred in just the last seven days. Yesterday set a one-day ridership record of more than 30,000 rides, the second consecutive record day.
NYC DOT Commission Janette Sadik-Khan said, “Seeing this surge in riding throughout a work week is a sign that Citi Bike is as solidly in the transportation mix for daily commuters as it is for recreational riders.”
And as one Citi Bike rider put it last week “Even when I’m going to a meeting, if I hop on Citi Bike, all of a sudden it feels like I’m just out for a bike ride for a few minutes and everything feels more fun.”
