This week we’re rolling out the new bike share feature in OneBusAway Android in Tampa.
Here’s a short article with an overview of the bike share feature, along with some screenshots:
Thanks again to Rodrigo Carvalho for all his hard work over the summer implementing this as part of the Google Summer of Code!
Any region can easily launch bikeshare – all you need to do is set up an OpenTripPlanner server (very similar to setting up OBA) and add a bikeshare feed (we focus on the General Bikeshare Feed Specification (GBFS), but OTP supports a number of other API formats too). There is a section at the bottom of the article with more details and links.
All feedback is welcome! It’s still a work-in-progress.

Sure! We can do a version for the OBA blog.
