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:

Yes, it’s true…DecoBike is essential for of the perfect weekend in Miami! Whether you are a local or a visitor, DecoBike serves many needs. Take a cruise around Lincoln Road and Ocean drive, go the gym or your office, or just park your car and ride to the sands of South Beach and take in all the sights. DecoBike does it all!

We are pleased to be featured in the February 2012 issue of Conde Nast Traveler, “A Perfect Weekend in Miami,” by Eimear Lynch who wrote:  “Borrow a DecoBike from one of 100 stations around the island (one hour, $5), and take it down Ocean Avenue. As dance-party favorites blare from boom boxes on the beach, you’ll pass all the beloved Miami stereotypes—mamacitas in barely there bikinis, musclemen, in-line skaters—on your way to grassy South Pointe Park. Linger to watch the boats go by (one of the few moments of calm you’ll find in this perpetually frenetic city), then bike back up to collect your car.”

It’s really that easy and thousands of people hit the streets every day on DecoBikes to have fun, save time commuting, forgo the hassles of parking an automobile and to help reduce the CO2 footprint of the community. Not to mention it’s a great way to burn calories and stay in shape. DecoBike is the official bikeshare program for the city of Miami Beach and the world-famous South Beach Art Deco district.
