The animation is based on released Capital Bikeshare (@Bikeshare) data for 2nd Quarter, 2015, which means there is only about 2 weeks of function included in this dataset, because our station was installed on June 18, 2015 (but who’s counting? 🙂 ).

These and other datasets show us that our city’s infrastructure is more alive than we think it is, and in this case, this infrastructure helps people be healthy.
