NYC Bike Share Interactive Mapping

To help figure out where the bikeshare stations might be located, the city’s Dept of Transportation partnered with OpenPlans to provide an interactive map where anyone could suggest a location and provide a reason why they thought it was a good spot. If someone has already picked your favorite spot on the map, you can select that marker and click a “♥ Support Station!” button to register your approval. Added up, these supporting clicks can provide a “rating” of how many people like each location. Within just a few days several thousand people had posted their suggestions. According to DOT:

"As of September 20 at 3:30pm [just 6 days after the suggest-a-site went live], we have received 5,566 individual station nominations and 32,887 support clicks."
