I love Lyft, you love Lyft, America loves Lyft. But apparently, Lyft’s Citi Bike has had to remove more than 3k e-bikes from the streets of New York City, Washington DC and San Francisco due to issues with brakes. Oof!
This is a fire-watch moment for their customer experience and for the time being, the e-Bikes will be replaced for actual bikes. So let’s all work on our calves for a bit while Lyft gets their e-bikes refurbished.
I can only imagine how many injuries (probably a couple serious ones) had to occur before the company figured there was actually a problem. Do I hear liability? Perhaps don’t go with the cheapest option next time. Sometimes quality does have a higher initial investment, but pays off in the long run.
