A Month of Citi Bike: A New Yorker Interactive

Super cool! Click title for link to an interactive map showing City-Bike use in New York over a period of a month. When you look at the map and hit play, you can see how the supply of bikes at various stations throughout the city undulates during the day and evening. Larger circles represent many bikes at the stations; smaller circles reflect less bikes. There are definite patterns throughout the day and weather conditions are also indicated. For a system that was initially maligned, it's good to see that it is serving a transportation need.
