Updated on 2016-04-12 to include 2013-2015 data.

The City of Vancouver made its bike rack data public yesterday. The data is divided into 4 spreadsheets, which isn’t terribly useful. The only interesting tidbit is the exponential growth in bike lane installations. Vancouver now has 1468 bike racks at 1119 locations throughout the city.

In the all the years up until 2009, 676 bike racks were installed.
In 2010: 52
In 2011: 197
In 2012: 543
In 2013: 138
In 2014: 148
In 2015: 422

But without a map, that doesn’t tell the full story. The map above is an interactive google map.

Note: The dataset uses addresses to identify the bike racks, so it’s not perfect when you zoom in.
