“Dear PoPville,

Not sure if you are aware of this, capital bike share is now supported by lyft. Try finding a phone number for support in the app. I’m not a big fan of this new relationship, can we expect random price increases similar to Jump? Perhaps is this the reasoning for the $1 surcharge for ebikes?”

Ed. Note: Lyft posted in July 2018:

“We are excited to announce that Lyft has reached a transformative agreement to acquire Motivate [who runs Capital bikeshare], the largest bikeshare operator in North America. Together Lyft and Motivate will revolutionize urban transportation and put bikeshare systems across the country on a path toward growth and innovation.”

Has anyone noticed a difference since then?
