Bikeshare services highest in D.C., study shows
The wheels keep spinning in D.C.
A new study is showing that Washington D.C.’s Capital Bikeshare program tops the nation’s bike sharing networks. Bikesharing, the Federal Highway Administration report defines as a service where bikes are provided so that users can use the bikes for point-to-point transportation for short trips.
The bikes are distributed at different points throughout a city through bike sharing stations. Members can join through an annual membership or through a day or per-use charge, which they classify as "casual members."
While the numbers are not reflective of the most recent data (as bikeshare locations and stops are constantly being added), D.C. tops the list.
|City||Bikeshare||Stations||Bikes available||Annual members||Casual members|
|Miami Beach||Deco Bike||91||800||2,500||338,828|
