San Francisco Bay: Interactive Map Makes Bike Share Easy

Posted by Joe Gentle on Friday, August 15th, 2014

For travelers, visitors, or even die-hard fans who want to make the most of their San Francisco Bay area bike share experience, the BABS (Bay Area Bike Share) map is the ticket. Colorful and easy to navigate, this online, interactive map offers users a variety of vital info, including:

  • TRIP STATS – Total number of trips from one station to another, proportion of trips made by subscribers, and trip distributions over time.
  • AVAILABILITY – Average number of bikes/docks and usage patterns (i.e., number of incoming and outgoing trips) at each station.
  • BIKE ROUTES – Directions from one station to another along with the elevation profile. (Directions courtesy of MapQuest)
  • NEARBY PHOTOS – Instagram photos taken around a bike station–a fun way to explore the area!

Industry stakeholders and planners can also make use of BABS data to predict demand and model bike-share user behavior, hopefully resulting in a smoother, more efficient–and more profitable–experience for everyone.

BABS currently services San Francisco, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Mountain View, and San Jose. Watch the video below to get started, or head straight to the source:
