The Bike-o-Meter


Paul Martin sent us this, too. From the same craftsman as the bike share live map in the previous post. Wonderful, simplified graphics.

Check it out right here - The Bike-o-Meter.

Why is FSD only 30%?

Sadly enough it probably wasnt and melbourne is supposed to be one of the more bike friendly parts of oz.

Branko Collin said...

It is always night-time in Melbourne.

I guess Rio de Janeiro and Bogotá are missing there in this chart...


what a colonial way of thinking, ain`t it?!

William said...

Well, Lucas, Copenhagen is missing too.
I think maybe it's because these cities do not make the data available in real-time in a usable format.

Personally I think this says more about the information society, where all kinds of data is instantly accessible - including updated statistics about the usage in a bike-share system. Also that we wonder when some data is /not/ instantly accessible.

Sadly a number of the dials have been dropped due to action by the cycle scheme owners - see here:

OH, NOW I understand...

I thought these dials were supposed to somehow show the overall share in city commuting taken up by bike traffic. Now I see this shows the numbers (percentage of the total fleet?) of bikeshare programme bikes in use at a given time...
