There's finally a real reason to hate Mondays

The bike count keeps dropping. The empty station numbers keep going up. A double whammy. Tell your boss you need to work from home on Mondays.

Monday is the only day of the week to have four visits to the Red Zone. Our guess is that Citi Bike people are enthusiastic on Sunday night and disappointed by Monday afternoon.

  1. I wonder if Mondays are worse because there is less rebalancing going on weekends, particularly Sunday night to prepare for the Monday morning rush. BTW, can the raw CitiBike data be used to figure out where and when rebalancing happens? On the station-by-station maps on O'Brien, they seem to be vertical lines (up or down).
