Bike-sharing systems have received increasing attention in metropolitan developments with the initiative to improve the “last-mile” connection to the public transit system and increase the overall connectivity of city transportation. It provides a low-cost, environmental-friendly transportation alternative to intensive car use for cities. Following the success of the bike-sharing system in European cities like Paris., Citi introduced a dock-based bike-sharing system to New York City in 2013. In this article, we conduct a careful analysis of Citi Bike usage data by clustering and analyze the imbalanced Citi Bike usage pattern. We also probe into the relationship between the Citi Bike system and the existing public transit system in New York City. The result of this research can be used to improve Citi Bike station distribution and design a rebalance strategy in the future.
