Is the placement of bike-share docks equitable? The map explores this question visually. It displays the progressive placement of bike-share docking stations over time, along with the race and median income of residents in the areas they serve. The map shows the addition of the docks, as well as the changes in income and race throughout the years the bike-share program has been in service. You can toggle the display to see only income, or race, or bikes data, or any of their combinations.
