Dreaming of Open Data

September 2nd, 2014

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 Tiny Bike 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.

    I added a couple more to the map and I know of a few more that are going to be installed soon in Clifton. I’ll try to add them when they get installed!

    FYI, the official locations are finally up: http://www.cincyredbike.org/locations/
