    Regarding stationless bikeshare:

    “The permit program will establish the permit fees and requirements for the issuance of the permit, administrative penalties for leaving an unattended bike that is part of the program on the street, sidewalk or public right of way, penalties for not obtaining permit and holding a public hearing if companies want to use on-street parking spaces to leave or park the bikes.”

    I thought that bikes were supposed to be parked on (but not blocking) the sidewalk? And that they can’t be parked in on-street car spaces? Maybe they’re talking about converting car spaces into bikeshare parking, but that sounds a lot like a station, which would subvert the idea of a stationless bikeshare model. Even if there’s no dedicated hardware at the “station”, if bikes can only be parked in a few designated locations, that’s not really stationless.
