Our consulting team conducted a comprehensive analysis examining ridership trends, rebalancing movements, an origin-destination analysis, and historical instances of full or empty stations. Using several analytics platforms, the team was able to quickly identify the stations best-suited for expansion or contraction. These particular stations were then isolated for a more detailed analysis.
Overall, the analysis produced several options for stations that we recommended expanding or contracting to help optimize and streamline system operations. Ultimately, the WE-Cycle team used the results of our analysis to order new station docks, re-organize existing dock placements, and shift under-performing stations to new locations.
