With five new dockless bikeshare systems joining Capital Bikeshare in Washington, DC, we are renaming CaBi Hack Night to Bikeshare Hack Night. This meetup is a show & tell of apps and data visualizations about any of DC's bikesharing systems: Capital Bikeshare, Jump, Ofo, Mobike, Spin, and LimeBike. And even mBike (College Park) and Baltimore Bike Share. (,,,,,,,
