NEW YORK - Citi Bike pedaled its way to a third straight year of record ridership in 2016.

The mayor's office says nearly 14 million Citi Bike trips were taken this year.

That rolled past the 2015 record by more than four million rides.

Citi Bike underwent a major expansion in 2016, and that's being credited with driving up ridership.

The bike share program added more than a hundred new docking stations and 2,000 new bikes to its fleet.

Citi Bike plans to expand further into Queens and Brooklyn in 2017.

More New Yorkers are also taking the East River Ferry as part of their commute.

The city's Economic Development Corporation says ridership on the ferry hit an all-time high of nearly 1.6 million this year.

That's an increase of eight percent from 2015.

The boost comes as the city prepares to launch the first phase of a new citywide ferry service next summer.

One commuter we spoke with says the ferry is the way to go.

"It's a great alternative to subways. It's less expensive to the subways, it's clean, it's easy. It's back-and-forth, it's quick. I think it's terrific," one commuter said.

The East River Ferry will be integrated to the citywide ferry system and a one-way ride will cost the same as the subway or bus.

By 2018, the service is expected to run 19 ferries with landings in all five boroughs.
