Oh Dallas’s bike system was dockless. Houston’s bike sharing has docks and is very neat and orderly and seems to be used mainly by tourists. (Yes, Houston gets the rare tourist)

Never mind.

Wow... $821 per bike is flat out extortion or theft!! The bikes themselves are maybe worth a 1/4 of that. (at retail!) The only "Terrible" thing here is the lack of leadership in Dallas.
Whatever could you mean?

Rawlings is a neo-Marxist. Clay Jenkins is a leftist DemocRat. The City Manager came from Tacoma and the new police chief from Detroit. Crime is up, the homeless are running the streets and camping everywhere, youth gangs are robbing and murdering, city services are deteriorating if they still even exist at all and there is apparently no money for anything other than removing harmless historical statues. Texafornia is a reality. :mad5
I knew Dallas’s pension problem was worse than Houston’s, but Dallas is the new Austin, I had no idea. At least in Austin and Houston, we like bikes and feel good things like that.

No place but Dallas.

https://reason.com/blog/2018/08/07/dall ... ng-company

Bikes on the recycling heap in Dallas. Mayor blames Bikeshare Company. May be it was the $800 per bike city licensing fee. Ya think.

I learned about this from a conservative gun lover in California.
