In today’s world bike sharing systems are becoming increasingly common in all main cities around the world. To understand the spatio-temporal patterns of how people move by bike through the city of Milan, we apply functional data analysis to study the flows of a bike sharing mobility network. We introduce a complete pipeline to properly analyse and model functional data through a concurrent functional-on-functional model taking into account the effects of weather conditions and calendar on the bike flows.
