Trip Data

Metro and its partners at Bicycle Transit Systems are pleased to share anonymized Metro Bike Share trip data with the public. The privacy of Metro passholders and users is very important to us, and information won’t be released unless the Metro can ensure that the identities of individuals or groups cannot be discerned and that their privacy is not compromised.

Toss it, flip it, turn it inside out, combine it with your own or someone else's data! Tell us how many trips happened after midnight, or near your event or business - we invite you to delve into the data and reveal the hidden gems of understanding that will allow us to make Metro Bike Share the best it can be.

Data Processing

  • Some short round trips or long trips may be the result of system or user error, but have been kept in the dataset for completeness.
