In fact I should say “feed _col_ or _pch_ argument with the result of findInterval” as below:
plot(data$stations, data$revenue, xlab="stations", ylab="revenue", col = findInterval(x$year, c(2005, 2010, 2015))
Please note that If you have many (20-30) intervals, colour handling will be more complex. But I assume you have maximum 5-10 intervals. So, the piece of code above will work for you.
