More Than 100K Riders Use Bike Share in 10 Days

NEW YORK (AP) -

New York City’s new bike-sharing program has seen a surge in use just 10 days into existence — with more than 100,000 rides logged so far.

Janette Sadik-Khan, commissioner of transportation, says Wednesday more than 30,000 riders have signed up as annual members. She says the program has had more than 6,000 daily and weekly users, too.

The bike-sharing program called Citi Bike has an annual membership cost of $95 and a day pass costing $9.95. It launched on May 27 for annual members and June 2 for everyone else.
