We created Google Maps mashups to visualize the hubway trips. The first link,
uses the google directions api to visualize all of the trips according to the likely paths the bikers took. The width of each stroke corresponds to the log of the number of trips along that path, and hovering over a station will highlight all trips that started at that station. Be warned, it can take a while to load!
Our second visualization,
visualizes all of the trips on October 1, 2012. Casual riders are depicted as black dots and hubway members are depicted as green dots. Each station is represented by a gray circle whose radius varies according to the number of available bikes.
