Inspiration

I want to get the data that citibike has into a more convenient format.

How it works

This site pulls your data from citibikenyc.com using an API built on ParseHub. Then it pulls all of that ride data into google maps, and into a sortable table. It also does some fun calculations.

Challenges I ran into

Citibike doesn't have an API that allows riders to access their trip information, so I had to find a way to scrape the data.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I'm really proud that I successfully scraped the data from citibikenyc.com and got it into JSON. That was a long process.

What I learned

This was my first time using the draw tools in Google Maps, Sort Tables using jQuery, and scrape sites using ParseHub.

What's next for myCitibike

Hopefully I can find a workaround to let users login with their Citibike username and password.
