A new data crunch from Office of Revenue Analysis blog District Measured looks at the ins and outs of Capital Bikeshare, and names the service’s busiest station: Massachusetts Avenue and Dupont Circle NW, which averaged 9,751 trips a month.
The least busiest station, at Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue & 49th Street NE, averaged just nine.
The post looked at the way traffic flows to and from stations within the District. Mostly, District Measured found, people move from the northwest quadrant to downtown areas and to Georgetown, and within that, from residential areas to commercial areas. “Arrival” stations, where more trips end than begin, were ranked according to popularity. At the top of the list was Georgetown Harbor station. Departures peaked at residential stations in Glover Park, Fairfax Village and Bloomingdale.
The data also show that unsurprisingly, trips change in frequency based on the weather. They start up in earnest in April, peak during summertime and head south for the winter around October.
