We are proud to announce that Sasaki Strategies’ team entry in the Hubway Data Challenge was awarded Most Artistic for their project, Hubway’s Role in the Greater Boston Transit System. Hubway, metro-Boston’s public bike share program, hosted a data challenge to bring aggregated data about Hubway trips to life through analysis and data visualization.
The Strategies team entry explored the relationship between Hubway and metro-Boston’s transit system. Through data visualizations and a step-by-step narrative, users can see how Hubway complements Boston’s other public transit systems and how it functions as its own transit service in the region.

The team’s integration of data, maps, and storytelling secured the team’s win for “Most Artistic,” one of only six awards for an entry pool of 25 projects. The team of judges found the “project to be a gorgeous combination of data and narrative, with an interactive story format that made the data more relevant and encouraged the user to explore the underpinnings of the system and how it connects with different neighborhoods via other forms of public transportation.”
