Neither Snow nor Rain nor Polar Vortex Will Stay Citi Bike

Citi Bike's recent ridership is far from its autumn peak, but record cold has not prevented thousands of riders from using New York's popular bike-share system each day this month.

"New York's bike share program is experiencing its first winter, and even though ridership is dipping with the temperatures, Citi Bikers are riding anyway," reports Kate Hinds. "The golden days of early fall (40,000+ trips a day) have been replaced by New York in January."

Take January 7, for example. On the coldest day the city has experienced in 118 years, more than 2,485 trips were taken, according to the system's Twitter feed. Not bad Citi Bike!
