Station information API broken?

It looks like the public station information APIs are broken, and don't resolve or give errors:

https://bikeangels-api.citibikenyc.com/map/v1/nyc/stations

http://gbfs.citibikenyc.com/gbfs/gbfs.json

Does anyone know the status of these services and if they'll be fixed soon, or if they've been moved somewhere else? The first one was working as of yesterday, and https://citibikenyc.com/system-data still links to the second one at least, so it seems like it should be working.

      This API seems to be giving bogus data.

      If I go to https://bikeangels-api.citibikenyc.com/map/v1/nyc/stations right now, as an example, the Greenwich Ave & 8 Ave station says:

      "bike_angels_action":"neutral","bike_angels_points":0

      While in the app it’s a 2-point dropoff.

      There are many other inconsistencies between that feed and what the app shows.

      Is this the correct feed? Can you please officially specify a feed for those who do analysis of the bike angels points?

  • Wow,looks like if you're an IT person with an IT issue they're right on top of it, but probably most people are like me & have no idea what this is.
