CoGo Bike Share patrons have taken more than 60,000 trips since the service launched last summer.
The service is expanding outside Downtown and landed a sponsorship from Medical Mutual this summer to help pay for operations.
City officials and CoGo representatives say they’re pleased with the bike share’s first year. However, CoGo has suffered from some of the same problems that have hit other U.S. bike-share systems, including falling short of ridership projections.
