    Yea i know the purpose. Im talking about putting the designated stations along the main corridors, then the user walking the final bit to their destination (I used a mile as an example so lets go with .1 mile; plus many user destinations are along main corridors minus residential). Rather than every street - at least in my neighborhood - being polluted with the odd scooter fallen over on the sidewalk of a non-main thoroughfare.

    My skepticism re: the stations is that Ppl would rather not walk any steps and just drop the scooter in front of their dwelling. Bypassing the Station. (E.g a Marta rider taking the train to Midtown station - picking up a scooter at the designated Bird station without wandering around - then dropping it off at a designated station in VaHi befor walking .2 miles to their house off of Highland Ave)

    So would need to have the device ride required to be ended there at the Station, or else significant deterrence from doing so. And a user benefit would be always knowing where the inventory of scooter or ebike is located (and having multiple vehicles at each location; rather than a couple needing to go on a scavenger hunt finding two scooters in different locations with sufficient battery.

    best is waking up early Sat/Sunday morning and seeing the wasteland of scooters ditched everywhere. looks like an apocolypse or something.

    Where I live in the LBC they tried to do a landing zone or drop off area for scooters by brand. It helps in the mornings when they are all replenished and replaced. It goes to shit later cause people won’t return them to a designated spot. Bike rentals have to locked back up at a designated spot so that at least helps there.

    What should I get around 4 on Buford? Planning on getting takeout, and not really feeling Mexican. Bismillah is the current leader in the clubhouse.

    I mean they already have caused deaths all over the place.

    LA is a wasteland with no less than 6 brands ejaculating scooters on every corner.

    But also sometimes they are really convenient.

    Yeah, today was my second time there and really enjoyed it. It’s good that it’s doing well because it’s kind of in a weird spot over there but hopefully that encourages more places like it to open up around the southern part of Berkeley Park. Where are you again?

    Nice. One of my close friends used to live on Ridgway before moving to Berkeley Ave. My wife and I are actually thinking about looking in the area so that we’ll both be closer to work. It’s not gonna be easy though because we love our proximity to the Beltline and all the great restaurants nearby.

    Hit me up sometime, we love it. I’m under 10 minutes from my office in midtown, and my wife is about 25-30 from her office (Kennesaw), but being right next to Howell Mill and Northside makes it a lot easier. We just moved in on Monday, but absolutely love it.

    Just spent a few days in Atlanta visiting my sister. She lives in Reynoldstown. Really like her neighborhood. Couple things I did while in town:

    -Breakfast at Homegrown in Reynoldstown
    -Tacos at Superica
    -Braves game (My first one ever. Super good time even though they got shellacked by the Cardinals Tuesday. I had the pimento cheese patty melt)
    -Walking around Midtown and Beltline

    Cliffs: I like Atlanta

    I have always told people that hate on Atlanta that its a tough city to visit but a great city to live. If you visit someone who lives there, you have a much better time than someone who is just in town for business or on a whim. Sounds like your sister did a good job of showing you the city.

    I'm not sure what you consider "started" to mean

    Grant Park is south of 20 so is Oremwood Park, EAV. Those are well beyond started.

    Peoples town is in full development mode right now with the construction of the spaces east of Turner Field.

    On the other side of the connector the massive Pittsburgh Yards has started ground work on the belt line and will be massive for Pitts/Mechanicsville.

    Further west, Adair Park is mostly 400k houses. West End is about the same and has the entire white street developments with Monday Night and other spots.
