    When visiting DC I was annoyed that Capital Bike Share didn’t work with the transit app and instead used their own app. Will Divvy still be allowing you to unlock bikes through the transit app?

    I worry that senior mobility is going to increasingly become an issue as the baby boomers age. Niles has loads of senior housing, but the roads are absolute crap for walking. There is a (free!) bus, but I think it will continue to be a concern.

    Did CaBi remove access to unlock via Transit app or did it never have it?

    I’ve seen nothing from Divvy to indicate the feature was being removed.
