Citi Bike Cracked Seven Trips Per Bike Yesterday (That’s a Lot)

tk

Citi Bike reached a milestone Tuesday. For the first time, NYC bike-share riders took over 42,000 trips, for an average of seven trips per bike. The last record-breaking day was July 31, which saw 41,895 trips.

For comparison's sake, London has never cracked six trips per bike per day, and Velib averages about five trips per bike, which Citi Bike has been exceeding almost every day since late June, when the program was less than a month old.
