Opening day of the Citi Bike system, with 332 stations and 6,000 bikes
It is now the largest bike-sharing program in the United States. In July 2018, ride-sharing company Lyft acquired the parent company of Citi Bike and other bikeshare companies and continues to operate them as a separate business. The "Citi" name won't be going away anytime soon, however, as Citibank added ten years to their sponsorship, extending the deal until 2024.
As of June 2020, there were 956 stations and 14,686 bikes, with Citibikers taking an average of 63,819 rides per day.
