I live in Fort Worth, Texas. My daughter will be a freshman at Gonzaga this fall. I have been enjoying your city all week. I just saw that Spokane is considering a proposal for a dock-less bike and scooter sharing program. I do understand wanting to have these vehicles be available wherever the people live, work, and play and not be limited to just where the docking stations are. However, living in the Dallas/Forth Worth area, I am truly privy to the “Tale of Two Cities!” Dallas’ streets and sidewalks are strewn with bikes and scooters. It is an eyesore and a safety hazard. Now, in Fort Worth, our mayor has said NO to any dock-less proposals. Does this limit the mobility of our population? I am not an urban planner so I will leave it others to decide. I will say that just because we CAN do something (dock-less stations), SHOULD we? It seems in other cities that the bike companies are driving the “bus” instead of the cities say yes to them but on city’s terms.
