Nice Ride program tops first-year goals

From MnDaily Nice Ride program tops first-year goals

Nice Ride Minnesota, the largest bicycle-sharing program in the United States, ended the season with 100,817 checkouts, beating its goal by 817.

The organization has 14 employees (who balance bikes across the network), so they are serving over 7000 rides per employee per season, or if they did this year round 20 rides per employee per day (probably closer to 30 rides given they are closed for 1/3 of the year). This is less productive than buses, but more productive than taxis.
