After neighborhood pushback, first Ford GoBike stations headed to Marina District

Ford GoBike rentals are bound to the Marina District for the very first time.

That’s the culmination of a half-year long tussle between Supervisor Catherine Stefani and Motivate, the entity behind Ford GoBike. Lyft bought Motivate last year.

Stefani announced she blocked Ford GoBike stations from being built in the neighborhood in a newsletter to neighbors in July last year, citing a lack of outreach from the company that had angered neighbors who wanted a say in where the stations would go — or if they could be built in the neighborhood at all.

Now, Stefani confirmed she’s in support of the first two stations set to be built in the Marina, though she was still cautious on Lyft’s relationship with the neighborhood… (more)

 

Why force Lyft GoBikes on a neighborhood that doesn’t want them? San Francisco politicians are good at ignoring the public. Question is why and what is driving the anti-public social engineering programs the public so obviously opposed when they voted against the YIMBY lineup of supervisor candidates in November?

Most people would say, “follow the money”. Will the Ethics Committee and our supervisors figure out a means to that end soon? We just need to know where the money is coming from. Forget trying to up the anti each time a cap is reached. The point is to limit the money in politics by making the donations transparent. Get the priorities straight.

Follow the money and find the contract with GoBike.
