So the dilemma is, if my destination station is filled when I get my bike, should I bet that a spot will open up by the time I get there? Dilemma solved. NEVER. Here’s why:
During the past two weeks (the beginning of Quarter 2) the average time it took a station once filled to have an open dock was:
Manhattan: 3.2 hours
Brooklyn: 3.5 hours
The numbers for Q1 are worse, but they’re ice encrusted:
Manhattan: 4.5 hours
Brooklyn: 7.3 hours
Unless you know the time the station filled up, and you can’t, chances are you’re driving yourself into trouble.
