New York City (PDF format):
Notice how things start to increase in 2003, which correlates
with a grassroots push for better conditions by the city's
Critical Mass community. The environmental group Time's Up!
organized the month-long BikeSummer 2003, and Transportation
Alternatives, the more mainstream group, has done "Bike Month"
every year since. With all of us working for the same goal,
we have steadily increased bike ridership.
=v= We got a very sharp increase in more recent years, once
the city hired a good Transportation Commissioner who put in
a lot of bike infrastructure, particularly in those same two
boroughs/counties. We have tripled ridership citywide in
eight years, and the numbers are even higher in Manhattan
=v= So, naturally, Zipcar wants to get all these new riders
