So where are they "locking" these bikes up at (?) at the end of the ride? I still can't see how dockless system is a good idea. Sounds like an invisible tether to those bikes.

I was just in Milton MA where they also have this program. I the people I was visiting are very environmentally conscious (composting, recycling everything as much as possible, etc ) but they were complaining about this program. They said people do literally leave the bikes anywhere, including blocking the middle of the sidewalks. If they have that problem in Milton, it’s a guarantee it will happen here too. But I guess no reason not to give it a shot at least and see how it goes.

That's how I feel. Why shoot it down before it's even given a try.
