  • Student Research: What makes some CaBi stations more used than others? — UNC Department of City & Regional Planning
    of trips at different Capital Bikeshare stations I created a regression of trips in October 2011 that began at stations in the District After controlling for 14 variables the analysis concludes that 5 key factors primarily determine a station s usage The population aged 20 39 The level of non white population The retail density using alcohol licenses as a proxy Whether Metrorail stations are nearby The distance from the center of the CaBi system I measured each variable based on what s within a ¼ mile walk of each station With that information I created a suitability map above For any spot in DC it projects how much ridership a station would get if DC placed one there You can also download the KML file to view the analysis in Google Earth The map shows that as you get farther from the main activity centers in central DC there s a dramatic drop off in station demand Approximately 13 of Capital Bikeshare stations as of March 2012 are located in areas where we would expect fewer than 18 trips a day The actual usage data shows that a significant number of these stations at the edge of the system have even fewer trips There are equity reasons to place stations outside the core policymakers want to make sure that money spent on Capital Bikeshare benefits more than just those who live and work in central areas and it builds political support from council members representing wards farther away However there are multiple areas around the District that are under served by bikeshare today yet highly suitable under the analysis Planners and policymakers should consider these areas as they build out and tweak the system in the coming years The figure below shows the coverage gaps by overlaying the existing
