It’s no secret that there were a whole lot of Capital Bikeshare trips in 2014. Over the last month, we shared several visualizations of trip data from July – September 2014 on our Facebook page. Each of these videos, created by Michael Schade of Mobility Lab, showed the combined arrivals and departures from three of our busiest months in one 24-hour cycle. We specifically highlighted the three busiest stations in the entire system - Lincoln Memorial, Union Station and Dupont Circle - to showcase our trip data and promised to award the title of 2014’s “Busiest Capital Bikeshare Station” today. Without further ado, we present you the top three for 2014’s award:
We added three new stations, expanded three more, and temporarily relocated one this month, bringing our system-wide total to 344 stations.
We’re always looking for the next great station location. Be sure to add your suggestions and vote for your favorites on our Crowd-Sourcing Map. We use your input to make decisions about the future of Capital Bikeshare!
