    I just renewed my Citibike subscription today. A lot of people, like me, signed up before the launch, meaning that their subscription has already expired. I wonder when we’ll be able to see some data about the renewal rate. I’d say that’s the most important measure of customer satisfaction.

    I was also surprised that they haven’t increased the price yet. Everyone seems to agree that it’s seriously underpriced (at least they could have had a token increase to account for inflation!). But last I heard they couldn’t because the city has to approve any price increases, if I understood right.

    funny how a “-” can make all the difference.

    Alta wanted to increase the annual membership in Citibike price to $140. This would still be reasonable. They needed this increase because Citibike is proving so popular and annual members are averaging high number of rides per day per bike overall; so at the current $95 rate, Alta is loosing money. However, NYC DOT declined to let Alta increase the annual rate.

The Daily News Settles It: NYC Needs More Protected Bike Lanes

Strip the conclusions from Alex Nazaryan’s bike lane review in yesterday’s Daily News — by my count, the 434th “Vicious Cycle” headline of the past three years — and you actually come away with some observations about NYC streets that I think most people who bike in the city would agree with. Nazaryan, you may […]
