    Default Priceonomics analysis of BikeShare systems

    This is what happens when you don't keep economists busy.

    https://priceonomics.com/public-bike...ge-data-in-us/

    "We decided to analzed data collected by Priceonomics customer Spin, a bikesharing startup. So, we compiled a yearís worth of ride data (10/01/2015 to 09/30/2016) from six major cities: New York City; Washington, DC; Boston; Seattle; Chicago; and San Francisco."

    It isn't clear how they are ascribing bikes and stations to the member jurisdictions - that is whether Arlington's bikes and stations are being counted as assets of that suburb of Arlington across the river.

    The 3700 number of bikes would suggest that by "Washington DC" they mean the entire Capital Bikeshare system, including Arlington and it suburbs of DC, Alexandria, Montgomery County and Fairfax.

    And then they divide by the area and population of DC proper.

    I guess I should check out their book "Everything is Bullshit."

    (They also talk about average trip length in time but do not discussing the pricing terms of the individual systems.)

    Sounds like the work of "Con"-imists.
