Six months ago I came across Jake VanderPlas’ blog post examining Seattle bike commuting habits through bike trip data. I wanted to try to recreate it for Vancouver, but the city doesn’t publish detailed bike trip data, just monthly numbers. For plan B, I looked into Mobi bike share data. But still no published data! Luckily, Mobi does publish an API with the number of bike at each station. It doesn’t give trip information, but it’s a start.
