Citi Bike ridership declined 15% in October from last year

Citi Bike ridership declined by 15% in October versus last year, showing, we suspect, some serious disaffection with the bike-sharing system. Certainly weather wasn’t a factor.

We now have year over-year-data on total trips taken for four months. After posting a 10% increase in July, ridership dropped 5% in both August and September.

Miles per trip are also down year over year though the gap closed considerably in October. Our interpretation is that the longer trips taken in 2013 reflect the initial exuberance over the system
