CityMetric examined recent bike-share data from six US cities in which Lyft partners with city governments to manage their systems "to see if there are any lessons to be learned from the ways in which people have been using bikes during the pandemic," according to an article by Alexandra Kanik.
"Our analysis showed that the places that people are going most often in those cities has changed, often in response to city policy. It also showed that when cities enacted new policies such as offering free passes to essential workers, as well as adding or expanding docking stations near essential businesses, ridership fared better."
The article includes detailed trip and travel data, maps included, for the San Francisco Bay Area; New York City; the Boston metropolitan area; the D.C. metropolitan area; Portland, Oregon; and Columbus.
