Hope they do the right thing by anyone injured, and they fix the problem toot sweet so they can get CaBi+ back on the streets.
    Sounds like adding a requirement that operators share safety information would be an improvement to dockless policies.

    Default Docked AND Dockless bikes and scooters should all be required to share safety fixes

    Dasgeh, why dockless? Should be safety (and safety fix) info should be required for all companies operating rental bikes (and scooters), both docked and dockless. At any rate, I miss the electric bikes, they were a great addition to the annual membership. Even though they were often out of juice or otherwise out of service!

    BRAIN article reporting CitiBike (and CaBi+) pedelecs won't return to the active fleet until this fall.

    The dockless policy governs the various private operators in Arlington, that otherwise have no relationship with the County. Arlington has a direct relationship with Motivate for the docked bikes, and thus can directly get safety information. If that's not already part of the contract, it should be. But that's separate from the dockless policy.
