A view of the [select] modes of transport, revealed by activation, to illustrate the levels/amount/rate of movement across the city.
- Bike share pods flash when the number of bikes available changes (currently 15 minute intervals)
- Rail stations change with frequency of service during 15 minute windows (radius changes for heavy rail, opacity changes for light rail)
- Bus routes traced by shooters (eventually will glow more heavily based on bus frequency)

- GTFS data from SEPTA for the bus routes and rail frequencies
