The longest NotSpots
We put the beginning of the storm at Jan 2 at 8pm, or 20:00. And we mark the end of the event at 15:15 Jan. 6 when the S 3 St & Bedford Ave station in Williamsburg hosted its first bicycle in 91.75 hours. In Manhattan, Liberty St & Broadway takes the prize, out for 71 hours ending Jan 5 at 18:45
Manhattan NotSpot duration
Jan 4. 21 notstops, 14 hours average
Jan 5 14 notstops, 16 hours average
Jan 6 8 notstops, 14 hours average
Jan 7 (to 1 pm) 15 notstops, 11 hours average
Brooklyn NotSpot duration
Jan 4. 2 notstops, 17 hours average
Jan 5 4 notstops, 31 hours average
Jan 6 12 notstops, 22 hours average
Jan 7 (to 1 pm) 2 notstops, 15 hours average
We wish we could say what a normal average duration is, but we don’t know that yet.
So let's rekindle some old grudgesThe one thing we see is that Manhattan fared better than Brooklyn. While compiling stats, we saw evidence of rebalancing at 9 Manhattan stations. Rebalancing is when the system operators replenish a station by the truckload.
We never saw a rebalancing take place in Brooklyn. When a station came back online it was because a Sharer dropped a bike off. Here's an example of rebalancing:
One thing we do hope to see is the average length of a NotSpot coming down, way down.
