I modeled a miniature, stylized version of Boston to serve as the backdrop on which to visualize Hubway's transit data. I took every 50th trip, and mapped roughly 11,000 paths, which build out according to time of day, start and end station, and trip duration (the vertical height of each arc also corresponds to trip length).
I also produced an animation showing that years' worth of trips collapsed into one day.
