There’s a touch of blue within the sky and there’s no less than some hope that air high quality is bettering in San Francisco. Good time to seize a motorcycle share and go for a trip–there ought to be one close by, except you reside in Cow Hole and components of the Marina in District Two.

“We’re annoyed by the shortage of progress concerning bike share in District Two,” wrote the SFBC’s Janice Li, in an e-mail to Streetsblog. “We’re seeing bike share stations put in from the Panhandle to the Outer Sundown and all the way down to the Bayview because the system expands, however there are solely a small handful of stations on the outer edges of Pacific Heights, the Marina, and surrounding neighborhoods.”

Years in the past, in January of 2017, outreach was conducted to pick locations in D2. The neighborhood workshops overlaying the entire Marina places have been held at Fort Mason Middle on November 15, 2018.

The next places have been authorised and permitted, and are indicated as such on the Bay Wheels website:

  • Filbert & Fillmore close to Shake Shack

  • Fillmore & Jefferson alongside the median on Fillmore

  • North Level & Divisadero subsequent to Lilienthal Elementary College

  • Laguna & Washington subsequent to Lafayette Park

Streetsblog reached out to Bay Wheels and SFMTA, and can replace this put up accordingly. Nevertheless, going by the web site, the primary three got remaining approvals over the summer time. And Laguna & Washington was authorised method again in October of 2019.

However nonetheless, no bikes.

“I’m very involved {that a} venture (any venture, not simply this one) can undergo a years-long approval course of involving a number of rounds of public outreach and at last obtain approval from the Metropolis, solely to be derailed afterwards by complaints from God-knows-who, filed outdoors of the official course of, and with no means for the general public at massive to reply,” wrote Marina resident and advocate Bruce Halperin, in a criticism filed with District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani and different metropolis officers.

“Our workplace has been working carefully alongside the MTA all through this course of,” wrote Frankie Falzon of Stefani’s workplace, in a response to Halperin forwarded to Streetsblog. “We haven’t been supplied with any particular timeline for implementation of those stations.” Streetsblog additionally reached out to Stefani instantly and can replace this put up.

This sort of subject–the place town holds hearings for bike share stations or different infrastructure, the general public approves them, and then the project is delayed or derailed behind closed doors–has come up many times before. And as Streetsblog has covered before, District 2 is a hotbed of resistance to bike share. The Examiner has reported how Stefani opposes stations in her district. Neighbors complaining about loss of parking is often the motivation for the pushback (or on this case, simply not doing it). “I actually hope not. They already compromised by decreasing the scale of the station from seven parking spots to 4,” stated Halperin.

Both method, “As extra individuals select to bike in the course of the pandemic, we desperately should be investing in sustainable transportation infrastructure like bike share stations citywide,” stated Li.

Halperin simply desires the rattling stations put in so he can use them. “Sufficient is sufficient!” he advised Streetsblog.
