Getting Off the Struggle Bus: Learning From Transit Data

In an extended version of the lightning talk I gave for the spring ChiPy mentorship final presentations, I will go into more depth about how I collected and processed bus location data from the CTA's bus tracker API. I will also discuss interesting discoveries I made once I plotted the data, work I have done on the project since completing the mentorship (collecting data from 30 additional bus routes, converting visualizations from Bokeh/Python to D3.js, analyzing and visualizing bus bunching, etc), as well as future plans for the project.
