Ok, I am clearly not getting to the right places for why people are upset/worried/excited about scooters

Andy and I headed up the coast this week, going from Venice to Pismo Beach, Pismo Beach to Monterrey/Marina, and landing finally in San Francisco.

Each day, in each location, I’ve seen one, maybe two scooters. What’s the deal? Am I not sampling the right locations? In SF I’m staying on Embarcadaro. I’d assume that would be a likely local. I’ve been sketching at the park across from my hotel for a couple hours every day, and I’ve hardly seen any.

Am I reading the media reports of this wrong? Do I just have too many haterz/loverz in my feed? Looking for them in the wrong spots? Or am I just not getting lucky?

  1. Not lucky. Bird pulled the scooters out of SF–temporarily perhaps–but there are tons of them in Oakland and San Jose right now

  2. Since early June they’ve mostly disappeared because of city action related to permits, which are capped at a pretty low number … the place you’re still most likely to see them would be along Market Street in the protected bicycle lanes.
