It didn’t take long for Citi Bike and the launch of the bike share program to capture our hearts. In just the 5 months it’s been active, there are over 80,000 members who have taken more than five million trips with the program. Citi Bike regularly sees six plus trips per bike per day, outpacing London’s system. During the launch, we looked at the pros and cons of the system. And since then, Citi Bike has done a lot to help meet user needs and expectations.
It has has grown more rapidly in terms of ridership than any other bike share system in the nation, and their blog provides fun and engaging ways for users to get the most out of their memberships. Just check out their haunted bike tours for Halloween to see what we mean.
All this has us excited. We’re big proponents of collaborative consumption, and Citi Bike helps solve transportation issues while minimizing resources. So, we’re thrilled to offer a free week rental to our Insider and CMO Pass Holders as an added benefit for joining us at SMW NYC. It’s just one of the many perks, so make sure you check out all the options now.
Grab your pass and a sweet bike ride to accompany it here. Enjoy!
