First spring-like day and Citi Bike keeps it in balance

About the NotSpot Index

Last year, Tuesday March 11 was the first spring-like day and the Citi Bike system groaned under the task of getting bikes to empty stations. NotSpots hit 58 at 11:30 am -- that’s 18 percent of the system out of service. For the day, the NotSpot Index was in the red zone at 46.

Throughout the spring, Citi Bike service deteriorated until it hit a record high 96 NotSpots on May 27.

If Monday’s NotSpot number of 29 is a harbinger of things to come this spring, we’re looking forward to a delightful season.
