DC Metro patterns

Using the recent publicly available WMATA (DC's Metro system) ridership data, I generated several network visualizations that highlight many interesting ridership patterns.  For example, you can clearly see that Farragut North, Farragut West, Metro Center, and L'Enfant Plaza are the work destination of many DC commuters.

You can also see that Gallery Place Chinatown, Dupont Circle, U Street, and Clarendon are the central night life locations.

It is also interesting to see the drop off in metro traffic on Sundays compared to Saturdays.
