Pressure to put B-cycles in lower income neighborhoods

Filling the demand of the "last mile" to all neighborhoods in Denver.

From the Denver Post

We sympathize with Denver City Council member Paul Lopez, who represents a mostly Latino district in southwest Denver. He wants new B-Cycle stations in his district — a request Parry Burnap, executive director of Denver Bike Sharing, would very much like to accommodate.

But we can hardly fault the folks at B-Cycle for using their limited resources to attempt to put stations where they believe, by virtue of their experience and data, that usage will be high.

To do otherwise would not make sense.
