Veoride program discriminates

This is in response to the opinion on Page A4 of the Dec. 28, 2018, edition of The Telegraph about the Veoride bike program. The piece went on and on about what a great idea it is, but no one thinks about how it discriminates against two groups of people, and I am in both groups. I am severely hearing – impaired and cell phones aren’t loud enough for me, also in a tiny minority of people who are smart enough to know that we dont need a cell phone. People often believe that everyone has a cell phone even though they don’t know everyone. I would like to know if anyone has a response to any of this. The Veoride program discriminates against two groups of people; the first group no one cares about and everyone is jealous of the second group. Can anyone dispute any of this? I anxiously await any replies.
