Capital Bikeshare Tops Other Cities in Users

As the frequent dock-blocking at its stations makes clear, there are a lot of Capital Bikeshare users. So many that the program had more annual users than other U.S. city's bike-sharing programs studied in February, Greater Greater Washington discovered.

Washington leads the pack with 19,200 annual members, dwarfing second-place Boston, with 3,600 annual users, and third-place Minneapolis, with 3,521 annual users. GGW points out that the study isn't perfect, since using February to measure bikers skews  colder cities' numbers downward. But who cares—we're No. 1!
