In addition, the number of times subscribers used the service plunged from 34,000 in November to 12,000 in March.

If Sarah Iannarone gets elected to be Portland’s next mayor our streets will probably look and feel a lot different.

A strong transportation reform activist who gets around via e-bike and sits on the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s bicycle and budget advisory committees, Iannarone would very likely oversee PBOT if given the opportunity.

That might be why many of Portland’s grassroots transportation activists support her campaign.

She’d also created “zero emissions thrive zones” and “pedestrian streets”.

I recently asked Iannarone to weigh in on the open streets debate. That is, what (if anything) should Portland do

Car News and Reviews in Malaysia

Following the launch debut of the 2020 Honda Civic Type R in the United States back in February this year, the carmaker has now released a short video detailing some of the changes made to the venerable hot hatch.

Before getting into the nitty-gritty, the video starts off by introducing us to the various generations of the Civic Type R, which began with the EK9 followed by the EP3.
