This message was sent to our neighbors on March 14, 2018 from Jason Hyde of the SFMTA:
Thank you for your communication regarding the proposed GoBike station(s) in District 2.
I’d like to reassure you that the SFMTA is committed to working with Supervisor Stefani and the District 2 community to address concerns about GoBike station deployment in the area. We have all agreed that it makes sense to pause any proposals or plans for proposed sites in District 2 until the supervisor has more time to get caught up on all the historic and current GoBike information, plans, and proposals.
Supervisor Stefani has asked us and Motivate, the owner/operator of the GoBike system, to partner with her on hosting another community meeting in your area (a public workshop was hosted at the Hamilton Rec Center in January of 2017). This second meeting will be an opportunity to have an open conversation about the station siting processes which are currently in place for District 2 and a dialogue about alternatives. Please stand by for more information on how to stay involved in the conversation.
The GoBike system furthers the City’s ambitious adopted goals and policies around supporting and promoting bicycling as a safe, affordable, healthy and clean everyday mode of transportation. The City’s public-private partnership with Motivate will bring San Francisco an expanded bikeshare system at no capital or operational cost to the public.
Thank you again for reaching out about GoBike. We look forward to working with the District 2 community over the coming months.
