Are you a data geek? I married one…but Shaun Jacobsen is waaay into it and parlayed his love of graphs and numbers into a public online transportation data base. Shaun is a slight academic, graduate student of Sociology, French, Economics, and Urban Planning at the University of Wisconsin and in his spare time he created the website: transitized.com where he keeps tabs on 3 main area of urban transportation: Walking, Biking and Transportation.
He recently compiled statistics released by NYC’s citibike bike share and created the: Citi Bike Data Explorer. Currently taking ridership information up to February 28th, 2014, the site looks at data from daily trips and puts it into some interesting and digestable graphs and charts…if your into that sort of thing.
Based out of Chicago, Shaun also has fun figures on their bike share program: DIVVY
Hopefully this information can be used to support these bike share programs and expand them across the US.
