Mark talks about CitiBike for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Well, I was stopped on the street yesterday and was asked what I thought about the implementation of the new shared Bike system being tested in Manhattan.

A rather unflattering edit was broadcast on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Thursday, June 6, 2013.

For the record: I am in favor of the idea, but the placement of the bike racks caused many unintended consequences that could have been avoided with better communication. I gave the example of the steps that movie location shoots go through with posting notices and actually listening to and resolving complaints promptly. CitiBike has a website, but I have not heard of a single rack that has been moved — even ones that block handicap access.
