- Yesterday I reported that the year-over-year increase on CaBi was over 3000%. But what I didn't mention was the comparison to the SmartBike days. I don't have numbers on SmartBike for the months when it overlapped with CaBi, but the system had 55,465 trips from August 2008-September 2010. Or about 43% as many trips as CaBi did last month. From September 2008 to September 2011 bike sharing is up ~5500%. I know it's apples to oranges, but still fun.
