A Closer Look At DC Bike Share Data

Capital Bikeshare in Washington DC maintains a database of trip history data, and recently M. V. Jantzen created a trip visualizer to help better interpret this data (630,000+ trips in the 3rd quarter of 2012 alone). Select a station and see a visual representation of the most popular routes originating there, with multiple station options for neighborhood trip data consumption. Play with the visualizer yourself, and read more about some initial findings of station use and trip distance at Mobility Lab.
