City of Miami Approves Contract for DecoBike Expansion

DecoBike’s expansion of its bikeshare operations into the city of Miami was approved on Thursday January 24th with a unanimous vote by the city commission. Plans include 50 new station locations and 500 bikes to be located in Miami’s downtown, Coconut Grove, Omni, Little Havana, Midtown, Design District and the Brickell Financial District. Other potential station locations include the Health District to serve Jackson Memorial Hospital and the University of Miami’s healthcare facilities.  The new network will link with DecoBike’s well-known Miami Beach bike sharing program to form one of the largest programs in the US with 150+ station locations and more than 1,500 bikes.  The expected launch date is in late 2013.

DECOBIKE BREAKS BIKE SHARING RECORDS

2012 marked a record-breaking year for DecoBike LLC’s Miami Beach bike sharing program with the country’s highest increase in ridership.  With 1,290,606 rides logged in 2012 alone, it’s the busiest fleet per-bike of any US bikeshare program and represents more than a 100% increase in ridership from 2011. The program is a true leader with nearly 2 million total trips logged– more usage than all other US bike share programs combined, with the exception of Washington DC’s government-owned Capital Bikeshare.

DecoBike Miami Beach also continues to lead the country for memberships. To date it has generated more than 500,000 casual and subscribing members combined, far more than other any other US programs.

2013 rings in DecoBike’s scheduled expansion into a variety of new territories including the city of San Diego and other areas of Miami-Dade County, adding an estimated 240 new stations and 2,400 DecoBikes into the streets with other new programs to be announced in the coming months.

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:

·        Journeyed 2,950,808 miles

·        Logged 17,704,848 minutes of ride time

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

·        Burned 100,000,000+ calories
