Citi Bike as a Verb

I hadn’t thought about this until I read this Times article on Citi Bike during the winter (and yes, I’ve ridden in January). Like TiVo, FedEx and Google, Citi Bike has become a verb.

“Are you catching a cab?”

“No, I’ll Citi Bike over”

The line from the article is perfect:

…as Citi Bike, the bike-share program in New York, quickly evolved from curiosity to lifeline to verb..

In the month of January, Citi Bike averaged almost 10,000 rides a day. Hard to believe people though this wouldn’t be a success.
