What do you think about the shared electric bikes that recently showed up around Santa Cruz?

I’m really interested in the experiment, and I’ve seen what other cities have done with them and I’ll wait until the jury is out.

I feel like safety is a big concern. No helmets come with them, nobody tells you how it works or how to safely operate them.

I think it’s a good way to get from [the Westside] to downtown and then just drop it off.

I think that any encouragement for using bicycles and a shared system of bicycles is a great idea, and great for Santa Cruz, which is pretty heavy on traffic.

It’s a great transportation alternative, it gives you a lot of flexibility and can get you around town and out of your car.
