What do you love most about your neighborhood/city?

The people!

Our incredible public school.

Each neighborhood has its own small town feel, its own mini downtown, different shops and restaurants, its own personality.

Most gorgeous city with so much green space.

What are your top 3 favorite local shops/small businesses in your neighborhood?

Preserve and Gather

Chucks Hop Shop

Un Bien

Have you given your gita a special nickname?

My boys named it Athena for a while, but honestly we all love calling it gita! The name fits!

Talk about your longest gita trip.

So much is close by in our awesome neighborhood! Once I made a few stops and it was so nice to be able to get everything done in one walking trip.

Where’s your favorite place to go with gita?

There’s a Safeway just 2 blocks away and it’s so convenient to take gita and not have to worry about how much I buy to carry home.

What do you like most about gita’s design/aesthetic?

Its adorable sounds. Battery life is also fantastic.

What made you interested in gita?

The freedom to walk more places without having to carry endless supplies for my kids!

What kind of reactions do you get when you’re out-and-about with gita?

I get stopped all the time by people wanting to talk about gita. The most fun surprise is people often assume it has voice commands and start trying to talk to it!

Was there anything that surprised you about gita?

I didn’t realize at first that it could move with the top open, and that was such a great discovery! I went to a birthday party recently and it carried the tall gift.

If more people lived the gita lifestyle (i.e. walking rather than driving), do you see that benefiting communities?

One of the things I like about living in such a walkable neighborhood is all the community building, and small but significant interactions I end up having with people. More gita means more people on the streets, and more chances to meet, greet each other, and grow our neighborhood’s community.

Have a Q for a gita owner? Let us know and we’ll ask our community.
