CityBikes: bike sharing networks around the world

Description

Lluís Esquerda - CityBikes: bike sharing networks around the world [EuroPython 2015] [22 July 2015] [Bilbao, Euskadi, Spain]

CityBikes [1] started on 2010 as a FOSS alternative endpoint (and Android client) to gather information for Barcelona's Bicing bike sharing service. Later evolved as an open API [2] providing bike sharing data of any (mostly) service worldwide.

Fast forward today and after some C&D letters, there's support for more than 200 cities, more than 170M historical entries have been gathered for analysis (in approx. a year) and the CityBikes API is the main source for open bike share data worldwide. This talk will tour about how we got there with the help of python and the community [3].

PS: We have a realtime map, it is awesome [4].
