The Challenge

To celebrate Divvy trip data for the 750,000 trips taken in 2013 becoming publicly available for the first time, we encouraged all scientists, designers, and programmers to analyze and present the data in visually compelling ways. The Data Challenge was launched in partnership with 1871, Chicago’s co-working center for digital startups.

We asked for visualizations that could help us illustrate the answers to questions such as: Where are riders going? When are they going there? How far do they ride? What are top stations? What interesting usage patterns emerge? What can the data reveal about how Chicago gets around on Divvy?
