I loved using this when I worked in Washington D.C. This will be fantastic to
have in SLC. Wish the time limit was a full hour instead of 30 minutes, but the
hubs seem well placed so it shouldn't be a problem. Good work SLC!
And people won't steal these bikes?
How will they make sure all the kiosks are not emptied? Are they seriously going
to use a truck to drive the bikes back to their kiosks? What a waste of
gasoline. This will end up as a waste of taxpayer money, just like UTA is a
waste of our money. I am not in favor of this one bit. If you need a bike, buy
one of your own and don't steal from taxpayers to fund your
environmentalist agenda. We all know who this comes from.
I saw that program at Wash DC and they have this first 30 min for free and yes
if stolen when it is not locked at the hub. Yes it will be a fee when it is not
return and will be reported stolen which I don't know the cost. Read the
link which will explain how it works and other details.I say it is a
good program and $5 for 30 minutes sounds fare.
1) Bikes are secured at the kiosks, and unlocked once you check them out2)
Not a taxpayer funded project. Keep your ill-informed rhetoric to yourself until
you check the facts. Assumptions are bad.3) Anyone who was in Utah this
winter should have an "environmentalist agenda"
