NYC’s new Citi Bike public transportation system has exceeded 100,000 rides within the first ten days of its release, NYC Department of Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan and New York City Bike Share announced Wednesday.
The Citi bikes have traveled more than 270,000 miles during the 10 days, which started on May 27th. Citi Bike has also exceeded 30,000 annual members within those 10 days. 15,000 have signed up within the past 10 days, and more than 6,000 daily and weekly memberships were sold.
“Citi Bike is New York’s summer blockbuster, and in just 10 days these signature blue bikes are already everywhere on city streets,” said Commissioner Sadik-Khan in a press release. “While impressive, these 100,000 rides are just a fraction of all the bike rides New Yorkers are making to get around, and we expect that Citi Bike will shift into even higher gear this summer as more people sign up.”
