The hub is getting actual use. I have seen it fluctuate from 0 to 7 bikes and then back. It appears already a quite popular hub. This is near the boulevards (Proctor, St Clair, south of King) so probably relatively-speaking more affluent. Still lots of rental dwellings here too, so a mixed income neighbourhood due to the mix here.

More low income memberships is an excellent idea; as long as effectiveness is measurable and accountable -- I want to see good effective use of these, without stolen SoBi issues from people without credit cards.

Fortunately, the SoBi fleet is fully GPS tracked. I have heard anecdotes from some SoBi contacts about bikes being brought indoors, the GPS trail disappearing into a door, and being subsequently rescued by SoBi staff who knocked on the door, Even saved a SoBi bike from being about to be disassembled! I also hear the bikes also have remotely triggerable alarms as well, which assists in quick recovery.
