Jamaica Plain News reports the city and the T seem to be close to figuring out the permitting issues that were holding back installation of one of the bike-rental racks at the Forest Hills T station and the one could be in operation by early summer. The lack of a rental place there has meant a big gap in the bike network between Bluebike racks in the rest of JP and in Roslindale.
Slydon wonders how these Bluebikes got down to the tunnel that connects the southbound Red Line with the southbound Orange Line at Downtown Crossing late this afternoon. Bluebikes replied it would dispatch somebody to get them out of there.
The Globe reports Boston is not going to let some bike startups do to Hubway/Blue Bikes what Uber and Lyft did to local cabs - the city's started seizing bikes from companies that let users just dump their bikes anywhere as they begin to infiltrate the city.
