Well, to be fair: Dear Andy Riga, transportation columnist at the Montreal Gazette, get over yourself.
Roving Universal Hub Web browser Tom Crowley alerts us to a Riga rant about how our impending Hubway doesn't mention that Montreal has a bike-sharing program and that ours uses the same basic technology:
On Wednesday, [the Globe] had a front-page story about bike sharing arriving in Beantown next week. The system there is called The Hubway for some reason, with one sponsor â€“ New Balance. So the awful name is the New Balance Hubway. Doesn't really yell out cycling to me, but I digress.
Quelle fromage! OK, so Riga's too busy to dash off an e-mail note to find out why something based in Boston might incorporate the word Hub, but I digress. However, he then goes on to write that maybe Boston is ignoring Bixi because we hate the Habs. Dude, our pal Stanley notes we are so over your little team.
