> it was my oversight not introducing the candice of the system is here i might suggest if i want candice can speak to expand that that is a well project the way in which the system is presented alongside the short time period is free then if you don't dock the bicycles the fees go up this is to expand educate any and all users. >> wouldn't it be easy to expand post it. >> mined that's a - there are materials that are already listed on the docks they're being revised. >> okay. the information that is posted now is confusing you plan to expand make changes to expand that in order to expand make it clear to the public.
9:31 am
>> that's right i've heard from my family members they've gotten coming out caught up. >> do you know how long that is going to take. >> candice. >> if you could identify yourself. >> i'm candice the general council a couple of things one is that we went through a process almost a year ago redesigning the decal to expand make it more clear after ref compliments to expand 0 convey what did cost. >> excuse me, sir thank you. >> sewer sure. >> we're in the process of reviewing a new design i received the new one this
9:32 am
morning one thing. >> do you have any idea when you think it might change the new signs are posted. >> we have a meeting this afternoon to expand talk about it. >> but do you have an estimated t. >> not at the moment i'll come back. >> that will obtain helpful that is one of the issues other concern i wanted to address is its my understanding that, of course the service that primarily focuses on local residence people that mostly live and work in san francisco to expand get around as an alternative means to expand transportation i think they have been concerns that this program didn't exist in the outer parts of city was wondering i know that i recently saw that there
9:33 am
was a survey put out that asks people to expand complete a survey to expand request the service or provide information a to expand whether or not they'll use the service so i wanted to expand make sure that the outreach efforts to find out if members in the uttering parts of the city to expand whether or not they'll use the service more than just an electronic makes sense but to expand outreach to expand the outer parts of city. >> yeah. i think you're referring to expand motivate launched a website where would you like the next station essential one of the things we're working with the municipal transportation agency staff is the issue how to expand do the community outreach obviously mta does very good outreach and knows the community-based
9:34 am
organizations they need to be talking with in order to expand identify those locations i mean this is a process that will occur over the next 18 months. >> the last concern i have about the program is the use of the tourists that use the service and the concern about safety, the concern having someone who is able to articulate to expand people who are visit san francisco some of the challenges i think that there's a problem sometimes because there often there's a lot of confusion a lot of uncertainty from someone that is from san francisco works and lives here there's more confidence versus someone as a
9:35 am
tourist they'll jump on the bikes to expand understand san francisco and get around difference i guess between this service for tourists and bike programs that focus on tourists is that they usually have people and those people have the ability to expand go over safety issues and maps and provide information that is useful to help avoid challenges that exist when i have people not familiar with the landscape i was wondering any plans to expand do a better job at figuring out a way to expand address the tourists population that use the service. >> i don't know if candice wants to expand speak to expand
9:36 am
this we'll benefit from motivates indirect relationship for example new york that deals with tourist much of the decalls applies here they'll not be staffed like the rental businesses that's not their intent but i recognize it is very important for the system to expand convey to expand all users how long they're going to be using it lounge the capacity and what it can and can't do they're working on the map panels that will be going up as a the system expands people uses the speech i've or the availability to expand bike lanes so bicyclists can match the skills. >> i guess my biggest concern this is not the kind of program that is designed to support
9:37 am
tourists i would just you know push back on the plans to expand make it the kind of program that does unless you plan to provide an onsite attendant for people unfamiliar. >> thank you, colleagues questions or comments i'll echo some of what supervisor breed said and looking forward to the offline part i know this communication about continue is there anyone from the public that wishes to speak on item 7. >> bicycle berkley arrest this morning i heard on the broadcast 5 uc
9:38 am
berkley it's time we need to expand initial listed our sifted cultural for americans because in time we move on we can't disregard what is happening on the trend are people having to expand make decisions engage in the activities parkway and influencing the social worlds of other people believe me certain individuals of a higher high precision imbalance if as superiority for people caused lots of competition against them. >> thank you sir, i think we're steering away from our bicycle conversation
9:39 am
>> thank you. next speaker, please. >> >> good afternoon, supervisors i live two blocks off of market one thing i constantly see i support clean air and bicyclists and stuff like this and bike paths around the city one thing i'd like for us to also remember is one day it will be a bicycle only city hopefully, but what happens show you we have to pay for the painting of the bicycle lanes and all the other stuff by vehicles we get federal grant and stuff like this i know we have to expand keep in mind the bicyclists will have to pay their fair share i know that's a bad thing to say right now about it will happen one day we should
