DecoBike LLC launches New York’s first Bikeshare Program

June 26, 2012 –  Bike sharing has arrived in New York!  Sporting an initial deployment of approximately 16 stations and 250 bikes, DecoBike’s new program in the city of Long Beach, located on Long Island, has been a hit with both residents and visitors alike.  Long Beach is a quaint seaside city that offers some great places to ride, including their famous boardwalk that runs along the Atlantic Ocean.  Many of those who live in Manhattan take time off to enjoy the beaches via a short train ride to Long Beach where they can now step off the train and grab a DecoBike to get them around the city.

DecoBike Long Beach is the first municipal bikeshare program to launch in New York and hit the streets ahead of the delayed launch of  NYC’s CitiBike program.

DecoBike Miami Beach Bikeshare pedals past 1,000,000 rides!!

The DecoBike Miami Beach bikeshare program reached an impressive mark on Saturday June 2nd by logging its 1,000,000th ride just fourteen months after launching. This statistic is a great example of the growing demand for bicycle sharing programs and it shows that bikeshare riders can  power change in their community by replacing local car trips with a bikeshare bicycle.

DecoBike in Miami Beach and Capital Bikeshare in Washington DC are the only bikeshare programs in the US to achieve this level of ridership.  DecoBike, which won the US Conference of Mayors City Livability Award on 2011, touts the best bike to resident ratio in North America and the most stations per square mile. Just as notable, the Miami Beach program was the first privately funded city-wide bikeshare that didn’t use any tax  dollars and is 100% privately funded.

“DecoBike has really done an excellent  job with the development and operation of our program here in Miami Beach. They have exceeded expectations, won awards and produced amazing results for our city’s residents and visitors,” says Miami Beach City Commissioner and “green” advocate Michael Gongora.

Between March 15, 2011 and June 2, 2012, DecoBike riders accomplishedthe following great achievements:

·        Made 1,003,520 trips

·        Journeyed 2,950,808 miles

·        Offset 2,550,000+ pounds of harmful CO2
