Swarm of Scooters

TODO

GBFS Feeds

These data are made publicly available by dockless mobility companies either voluntarily or as required by municipalities for a permit to operate. They are formatted according to the General Bikeshare Feed Specification (GBFS) that is maintained by the North American Bike Share Association (NABSA). Although GBFS was originally designed for docked bikeshare, it can be adapted fairly easily to cover the broader category of dockless devices as well.

The table in data/systems.csv lists all the GBFS feeds for dockless mobility companies that I currently have. In many cases, I was able to get data from NABSA's systems.csv. However, in other cases I was able to find publicly-available feeds that were not listed on that list. For example, Bird does not post any of their system information there.

Map Styling

The following table includes the color that I used to symbolize the provider in the map. I will update the table (and map) as I add any new providers.

Provider Icon Hex
Bird bird #000000
HOPR hopr #5DBCD2
JUMP jump #F36396
Lime lime #24D000
Lyft lyft #4F1397
Razor razor #FF0000
Skip skip #FCCE24
Spin spin #FF5503
Wheels wheels #3D4CB7
Wind wind #5E7C8B

Neighborhoods

Zooming out on the map will triggers neighborhood polygon overlays with devices counts for each.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
