On your terminal:
> bikes `station-id`
Basically the bikes command and whatever station you want to check.
At first, you will obviously not know the id of a particular station. Run the command this command below to the list of all stations ids and names:
You can get that with the command
bikes. It is a deliberate api design decision. The reality is that you most frequently use only 3 to 4 stations anyways. By your fourth use, you will know the id by heart (one or two digits). Then you can pretty much make the query in less a second. (Will save you a lot of time).
No api to mess with. Enter the command
bikes and the
station-id and get an instant update (number of bikes and docks available). Enter
bikes only to get the updated list of stations ids and name.
