A record 60 empty stations at 11:30 am today

  • This is what we don’t want to see: creeping NotSpotism. We confronted the year’s high for empty stations -- 60 --  at 11:30 am on a cold (35F) and blustery Monday. Previous high we recorded this year was 57 empties around 11 pm last Tuesday.

  • The bike infusion we reported on Twitter last night continued into today. Good thing, too, considering the NotSpot record.  We found 3895 bikes available at 3:30 pm today. That’s the most since Monday Feb 3. We hit a low of 3160 last Wednesday.

  • Good morning, Front & Gold.  The Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn, station emptied out on Tuesday Feb 4, slept peacefully through the storms and reemerged today, serving bikes like nothing ever happened. And it didn’t.

Bikes available at 5:30 pm today: 3611

Out of service: The usual suspects

  1. This is a great blog. Couldn't believe how few bikes there were in midtown Saturday night at 8pm. Have you explained how maintenance, distribution, etc. is supposed to work? This is what you get with a quasi-private system, make it CITYbike now! Thanks.
