Dreaming of Open Data
As SORTA continues it’s endless dissembling, and TANK more honestly lacks the resources, I wonder if the bikeshare of all things will beat both to the postmodern age and release real-time fleet location data.
Dare a boy dream of such things? Perhaps a less cynical one might.
But in the meantime, if anyone is curious to see the actual locations of the bike share stations as they’re installed(which, oddly I have not seen anywhere else yet), I’ve been adding them to OpenStreetMap as I find them. Look for nodes tagged ‘amenity’=’bicycle_rental’ and ‘network’=’Red Bike’, or on the main OSM map stylesheet. Or just follow that link for a map with dynamic query results ;-)
I know of 11 stations as I write this.
