Data from ten months of the Q train slackbot I set up.

Check it out!

Casper’s offices are moving to FiDi, so I’ll be taking the 5 train now. Time to close out this data collection process.

I set up a slackbot to record data from the MTA realtime API every morning before I left for work, and then to ask about my commute afterwards.

It turns out that I rarely have a “bad” ride (15 across the space of 10 months) so it’ll prove challenging to forecast them! Regardless, I’ve compressed the json data so anyone can check them out.
