Hi BetaNYC, 

 

I'm excited to share this little side project that I've been working on with the FOIL'd NYC taxi data.  It offers a glimpse into a single 24 hour period, for a single taxi, and tallies up fares, taxes, and passengers.  

 

I've already seen some interesting things, such as unexpected gaps during prime service hours for some taxis (why?  Long lunch breaks?  Shift Change?)  as well as some pretty big variance in daily earnings.

 

I hope you like it!  Blog post coming on the tech recipe, there's a lot going on under the hood.  

 

-Chris
