Now you’d think Frisco’s tourists would love love love an area taxpayer and feepayer-subsidized bicycle rental service with stations all over touristed areas like Market Street.
But some don’t because they get confused about the confusing pricing scheme, and they think wow, $9 for 24 hours? Man, we’re going to ride on out to Ocean Beach, whoo hoo!
But then it turns out that your credit card gets charged like low three-figures, because you didn’t check in your bikes every 30 minutes.
These bikes, coming back inbound from the West Side, where there are no BABS stations, are overdue and on the clock. They have exceeded their 15-minute combat radius:
And then our tourists rage against BABS the only way they know how – on the Yelp.
And this is still going on, in 2017.
The “solution” to this issue is that you get an automatic 50% refund just for asking.
Not much of a solution.

The street triangles of the Outside Lands become an issue for the SFPD:
You see, the problem here is that there isn’t any church around to persuade the SFMTA about how it’s OK to park next to a median, oh well…
How would you water this wobbly putting green high up near Turtle Hill / Grand View Park? Do you wait for the rain of Yosemite to accumulate and then make its way through hundreds of miles of the Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct to get to Frisco and then have somebody pump it up to your house so that you can waste “America’s Best Drinking Water” for your own suburban-style glorification?
I think that’s the system, man.
But brown is the new green, man.
Infamous “MISSING (NOT STOLEN)” Trials Bike Found, Sort Of – On Top of a Saab in the Western AdditionMonday, June 6th, 2016
You wouldn’t believe how many light post signs that could be seen all over town last month, advertising this bike.
And look, here it is, east of the Northeast of the Panhandle Area (NoPA) – aka our Western Addition. Seen coming…
And here’s your close-up:
Not sure what all this means…
