CaBi Hack Night is a show & tell of apps and data visualizations about Capital Bikeshare (http://www.capitalbikeshare.com/). Read about CaBiHackNight I (http://mobilitylab.org/2013/12/11/capital-bikeshare-hackers-pedal-their-wares-at-mobility-lab/) and II (http://mobilitylab.org/2014/08/11/cabi-hack-night-2-brings-out-nerds-who-love-bikesharing/) and III (http://www.meetup.com/Transportation-Techies/events/200661602/) to get an idea of how it works. Doors open at 6:00; presentations start at 6:30. Note we are at 1776's Crystal City location, in Arlington, VA.

• Matt Caywood (https://twitter.com/MattCaywood) of TransitScreen (http://transitscreen.com/), sharing his study (http://greatergreaterwashington.org/post/27555/empty-bikeshare-stations-dont-always-mean-long-waits/) of how long you should wait at empty/full bikeshare stations.
• Anna Petrone (https://twitter.com/1littlevictory/) will show us a way to calculate the amount of rebalancing needed between bike stations.
• Matthew Ficke (http://www.mattficke.com/) will show his app that predicts the likelihood of finding a full or empty station.
• Nico Staple (http://nicostaple.com/) will show how he made a CaBi app (http://cabi.nicostaple.com/) that shows dock statuses.

1776CC has two bikeshare (http://www.capitalbikeshare.com/) stations nearby, and is close to the Crystal City Metro station (http://www.wmata.com/rail/station_detail.cfm?station_id=45) on the Yellow and Blue lines. The building has underground parking (park in the green zone); free if you enter the garage after 4pm. The neighborhood has more free parking (http://www.crystalcity.org/accessible/car/parking/free-parking).
