Comment:
Bytelogics Inc would like to add the attached comments and does not think the rule should be done they way it is proposed. Instead, bike sharing companies should post data to NYC DOT server and receive geofence files real time of problem areas. There should be a quality of service requirement and penalties for noncompliance. Currently "regulatory capture" is a major topic with San Francisco giving out only 5 licenses to 20 applicants and thus the business is to hire consultants to be one of the few chosen. This would shut out local nyc businesses like Bytelogics from developing a bike sharing system.
