I’m not familiar with Glasgow enough to respond specifically, but it sounds like bike sharing is generating some interesting effects there, whether intended or unintended. Thanks for reading!

My initial thoughts on its very earliest format is that it enforces the already entrenched mentality of an east-west divide in the city. Prodominately the bikes are in the City Centre (a shared place for rich and poor) and the west end (a predominately affluent enclave). Like I mentioned its in its very earliest stages, and I belive that if it is to be deemed a real success it has to be expanded into east end (a stronghold of deprivation) and look to ultimately break down the mental barriers between east and west rather then enforcing it.
