Mobi’s bikes move all day long, and patterns emerge. For example: Some docking stations fill up in the morning, and others empty. To make sure that most stations have both bikes and empty docks — you have to balance the system, all day, every day.
Walking home from an errand, I saw the rebalancing crew at Harwood and Bute. Apparently, part of the Mobi package is an iPad app that notes the candidate stations for pickup (most docks full) and dropoff (most docks empty).
