First Look at Fairfax Capital Bikeshare Data - Update

Mobility Lab just published a brief article on a heatmap visualization of Capital Bikeshare usage in 2016, including data from Fairfax County, Capital Bikeshare heat map visualizes 2016 rides, first look at Fairfax ridership:
At the 19 stations split between Reston and Tysons, a heat map weighted by the number of trips highlights a general preference for the former, despite the three Metro stops near the Tysons bikeshare stations. It is likely that the more biking-friendly street grid in Reston Town Center is encouraging more riders there, while others are making the last-mile trek from the Wielhe-Reston station, currently the terminus of the Silver Line, to the commercial and residential center.

While the maps for “registered” and “casual” (unregistered) riders are virtually the same for both areas of Fairfax, a heatmap weighted by overdue rides suggests that riders may be taking longer, more recreational rides around the Town Center.

It is also worth noting that Reston’s stations are closer to the multi-use Washington & Old Dominion trail.
Update 30 March - See the Reston Now article FCDOT Happy With Reston Bikeshare Usage, Has Plans for 10 Additional Stations.
Residents interested in having a Bikeshare station installed in their neighborhood can email their request to or use the interactive map at Lind said public outreach will also take place in the coming months to discuss suggestions about where the future stations will be placed.
