" If Alta doesn't own the hardware how can the company buying Alta take ownership of the hardware?  Unless they made a deal with the city and Feds."

"I believe that Alta Bikeshare merely operated the Divvy program. This city owns all the hardware: bikes, stations, trucks, etc. which was paid for by the federal grant. The article did not mention weather bikeshare holdings would take wner ship of…"

"I  think that over 50% of Chicago cyclists are clueless or arrogant. It is not just rolling stop signs an red lights, it is weaving in and out of slow moving traffic. As a driver I consider these guys morons, as a cyclist I consider these guys…"
