The PRONTO TOP 20 is a refined, minimal visualization of the first full year of the Pronto Cycle Share. We crunched 140,000 trips and 54 pronto stations in order to map and understand the most frequently used Pronto routes in Seattle. This shows the most twenty most popular starting/ending point combinations and their metadata such as elevation gain, average duration, and membership statistics.

What is Pronto Cycle Share’s role in Seattle’s transportation system? There is a clear visual pattern of North/South travel, especially along the waterfront corridor and the new 2nd Avenue protected bicycle facility. There is a clear concentration of usage around the high-tech employment zones. And, there is a funnel from several stations in Capitol Hill to the Convention Center. We would officially like to name these runs The Pine Bomb, The Olive Bomb, and The Summit Bomb. Kudos to the Pronto employees that rebalance these stations.
