    Hi. I don't know if you read about the Bike Prescription program between Hubway and Boston Medical Center, but the program is "prescribing" Hubway memberships for 1,000 low income individuals. Related to this, I would be interested in doing some data mapping/visualizations related to Hubway stations, bike infrastructure and income/other neighborhood SES variables in the City of Boston to see how accessible Hubway is to low-income neighborhoods. Let's talk if you are interested. I think that Hubway has released all of the data that we would need aside from the Census variables.

      Nice! I feel like I had a conversation with someone a few months ago mapping similar data.. but I can't remember who it was. Maybe Calvin might know. I think I met the person at a GIS meetup he invited me to..

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
