Metro wasn’t the only public transit option that broke records—and escalators—on Saturday. According to the good people at the District Department of Transportation, Capital Bikeshare also had the highest ridership of its (much shorter) life, clocking in at 2,343 trips, taken by 1,374 riders. That’s quite a bit more than the previous Saturday’s 1,727 trips, and many times more than the average rate in the first ten days of the program’s existence.
We’ll get a more complete picture of October ridership in a week or so.
