Note to City Council Members:
Contemporary municipal contracts with bicycle-sharing companies typically require those companies be accountable and share revenue. It’s a thing.
SOS (Save Our Streets) Pledge:
1) Daily Pickup for bicycles and scooters (after dark)
2) Responsible Growth (matching vehicle stock with usage, i.e., not overstocking)
3) Revenue Sharing (with city to help pay for new bike paths; makes sense, bc they are making money using our streets and sidewalks, right?).
We may think it’s cool to get bicycle- and scooter-sharing, and we may think it’s cool to get vehicle-sharing (with no revenue sharing for parked cars on our streets), but the way our city council members are doing it is #NotCool.
The Mayor gets it. But she cannot lead the city when the 4 other votes don’t know what they are doing.
All to be remembered in November.
