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.
