Vancouver’s Mobi bike-share system has hit 100,000 rides. Most trips appear to be short one-way rides, as expected, from the 80 stations (800 bikes) now in place.
My experience is unchanged. The system, with all its moving parts, just works. And it’s a positive addition to the transportation options we have.
From the City of Vancouver press release:
Comparable cities with similar or larger-sized bike share systems have passed 100,000 rides in anywhere from two to nine months; Vancouver’s program reached that milestone in just three months. . . .
. . . . The top five most popular Mobi stations are:
- Granville and Georgia
- Hornby and Nelson
- Hornby and Pender
- Bute and Robson
- Ontario and the False Creek Seawall.
These are all locations that are near transit connections or active transportation routes.
