Citi Bike Gender Divide

A map of the top ten stations in NYC's Citi Bike system by gender.

As the city enters a long-awaited spring and the bikes emerge, so too might a pattern: according to Citi Bike’s public data, men are riding more – far more – than women, averaging three times more rides. Of subscriber-based rides in July through December 2013, men took 76.3% of all trips, and women 23.7%. What is the cause of this disparity, and how can it be resolved?
 
We made this map and information graphic to show the top ten stations in the system for each gender. Part of a larger initiative to look at bike share from all angles and better understand thedynamics in New York and beyond.
