Less than a week into the Citi Bike share program in New York City, and so far, so good, says NYC DOT Commissioner Jeanette Sadik-Khan.
By day four, 24,000 people had signed up for the program.
"We've had 31,000 trips taken in just the first days alone. The bikes are steady and smooth. It is a wonderful thing seeing city riders- even cabbies- giving it the thumbs up," said Sadik-Khan.
But critics have been vocal about potential dangers like people getting out of cars and colliding with oncoming bicyclists or the locations of bike racks blocking building entrances and parking spaces.
Annual membership for the Citi Bike share program is $95.
Weekly bike share passes are $25 with extra fees starting after 30 minutes.
