For the first time, Hubway’s complete trip history data is being made public, and we want to see what you can make out of it.
Entries can be visualizations, animations, maps, or infographics that say something new or creatively illustrate the more than half a million bike trips included in one year of data. Submissions are welcome in any form, digital or tangible; the winning entries will be both smart and beautiful.
How to enter
Anyone may enter, from pro to amateur, whether as individuals, in teams or studios; the contest is open to students, members of the media, artists, corporations and even those who only moonlight as data geeks.
To enter, visit hubwaydatachallenge.org to find rules for submission and download the data.

The deadline is midnight (11:59 p.m.) on Halloween, Wednesday, Oct. 31. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 7, 2012.
Up to three team members of the winning team (or teams) will ride off in style with a one-year Hubway membership, a Hubway T-shirt, a Bern helmet, and a limited edition Hubway System Map —one of only 61 installed in the original Hubway stations.
