NYC Citibike Rebalancing Study

Urbica, 2016
Area Mobility Planning Medium Information Visualization Type Research

This study focuses on a few of the most intractable problems that any robust bikeshare network faces: rebalancing stations so that they are neither full nor empty, and bike availability. Uneven demand and traffic flows are the root causes, preventing bikeshares from reaching their full potential as forms of public transportation. We decided to explore Citi Bike?s system data and json feed for the year 2015 in order to visualize and analyse where and when bicycles were transferred and bike availability patterns.
