A peeved citizen files a 311 complaint about all the green-and-yellow rental bikes dumped along the beach in South Boston:
These bikes have been here for 3 days. Everywhere on the beach are abandoned bikes. Who gave permission for this littering atrocity to operate in the city of Boston? Please remove the bikes!
A slightly less peeved citizen reports, without any commentary, a similarly abandoned green-and-yellow bike on Charles Street, Beacon Hill.
The LimeBikes, which come from points north of Boston, are actually working as designed: Unlike our
Hubway Blue Bikes, which have to be returned to a docking station, these can just be abandoned anywhere, on the theory someone will see one and want to rent it - and in the meantime, they act as free advertising for the company that owns them.
It started in Charlestown.
