Citi Bike riders have taken 10 million trips in 2015, shattering 2014’s previous record of 8,092,952 trips, Mayor de Blasio, Motivate President & CEO Jay Walder, and Citi Head of Public Affairs Edward Skyler announced today.

Ridership increased 24 percent in 2015 – including seven days in which ridership exceeded 50,000 trips, twice during the Papal visit in September.

The 10 millionth trip was taken at 1:08 p.m. today. To celebrate this milestone, Citi Bike is awarding 2015’s 10 millionth rider with a free year of membership, plus three gift memberships to share with family and friends.

Citi Bike has far and away the highest ridership volume of any bike share system in the nation, and is on par with the largest bike share systems in the Western hemisphere. There have been nearly 9 million trips taken on Mexico City’s similarly sized EcoBici bike share in 2015, and London’s larger Santander Cycle Hire was on pace for 9,943,074 trips in 2015.
