We know, but we're not sorry. Too much cool data to get to.
Some questions you may have:
In 2013, Hubway in partnership with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, released data from more than a half million trips that were taken on Hubway bikes between its launch on July 28, 2011 until the end of September 2012. Their mission? Ask the public to put together a visualization of all the trip history. While the challenge itself has officially closed, we decided to take on the Hubway and MAPC visualization challenge.
We are Team Datahub, and we are on a mission to visualize this bike sharing platform. As students, we make use of many forms of alternative transporation to explore and commute around Boston. In particular, bikes are a popular, affordable method of transportation for students, professionals, and tourists alike. We want to understand more about who uses bikes and for what purpose, as well as how people get around Boston. Our goal is to find answers to these questions for ourselves, and create a visualization for others to discover the answers as well.
