NotSpot Index: System performing so much better than last year

About the NotSpot Index

Week 5 came in with the second best NotSpot score of the past 52 weeks. Not included in the average were the weather-challenged days of Monday, Tuesday and half of Friday. 

What's really encouraging is that the system is performing much better compared to this time last year, a now-infamous period when Citi Bike had drastically cut back on street crews. And for two weeks in a row it has been able to do this with far fewer bikes on the street as Operation Overhaul continues.

The week of June 8, 2014, holder of the title Best Week Ever, also saw extreme weather. It started out with thunderstorms followed by week-long wretched humidity and temps in the 90s.
