    The SFMTA is spending $1.5 million on electric bike share. And it’s not point-to-point – you have to return to the same spot. I’d rather that money go to more Bay Area Bike Share bikes/stations.

    It’s not point-to-point?! Oh, come on!!

    Agree that Bay Area Bike Share should be a much higher funding priority, though it looks like the $1.5 million is from a federal grant for this purpose, so in this case it may not have been an option.

  • It does seem a bit ridiculous to have two different government-sponsored bike sharing programs.
