Bublr Bikes Sees Record Riders During Warm Stretch
Thanks to record temperatures in Milwaukee this week, Bublr Bikes, Milwaukee’s bike-sharing system, saw record usage by riders eager to bike during the city’s unusual springlike weather in the middle of February.
Over the weekend form Thursday through Sunday, Bublr saw a total of 1,379 trips -- more than the 1,326 trips taken in all of February last year.
During just the two days of the weekend, Bublr saw 1,021 trips on its bikes -- 616 rides on Saturday and 405 on Sunday as of 5:00 PM. The total of the two days together surpasses the biggest single Bublr day ever, on July 4, 2016, of 960.
Bublr, which started with one demonstration station in 2013, now operates year round. It began its winter operations during the 2015-2016 season.
