To celebrate six months of operation, Bay Area Bike Share released a detailed data set, and encouraged developers, designers, and anyone with a bit of curiosity to present the data in visually compelling ways. The Bay Area Bike Share Open Data Challenge was launched in partnership with Stamen Design, a design and technology studio based in San Francisco.
We asked for visualizations that could help us illustrate the answers to questions such as: What stations are the most popular? What time do members ride? Do different riders use the system in different ways?
