News8 has a story about how DDOT "is getting an earful over its bike sharing program." Except that then they point out that much of the feedback they got was positive. And they point out that some commenters on GGW questioned the lack of stations in some areas, but then it turns out DDOT did plan stations in those places, it's just the map wasn't quite ready for release.
Yes, that sounds like an earful. Much positive feedback and some completely reasonable comments such as this.
Not satisfied, they take their camera out to what appears to be a Metro station in SE, to make station placement seem like a class/race thing.
"You've got to understand the politics of it," said Jose Castillo, a SE resident. "You've got low income people in that area, so the money won't cater to them right way."
But looking at the map, shows that there are no stations in the Palisades or Upper Chevy Chase either. They must hate poor people and rich people. It's like the Andromeda Strain! Jim Sebastian explanation of how critical density is to the system or the population maps used to determine where to place stations are just a clever and coincidental ruse.
Oh News8, what would we do without you?
