The Ford GoBike Resistance
Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez reports on the arrested development of Ford GoBike around the city of San Francisco.
"[A]s the bike rental service is on the cusp of its planned expansion to 7,000 bikes Bay Area-wide, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is also increasingly pushing back against it and the Lyft-owned company that operates the program, Motivate, by saying that not enough notice has been offered to neighbors about new station installations," writes Fitzgerald Rodriguez.
Was a result, when it comes to bike share options, there are haves and have-nots in the city. "But while each supervisor sees this problem through a neighborhood-focused lense [sic], each individual battle adds up: The bikeshare-slowdown now stretches citywide."
