“If what is in that WSJ story is true,” said David Zipper, a Visiting Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School who studies urban mobility, “it suggests there may be a conflict of interest that is irreconcilable between bikeshare and ridehail.”
Pretty obvious today that it is a clear conflict of interest to run a bike share and ride share and think they are complimentary to each other. Why don’t we have bike share as a part of a cities general public transportation infrastructure along with buses, trains, trollies, etc?
Bit of follow up. Lyft has put its bike share, Citi, up for sale. [https://www.theverge.com/2023/7/26/23808205/lyft-citi-bike-sale-bike-share-scooter](For Sale)
