- Our website: publicbikeshare.com will reopen March 2016 with upgrades and a new exciting outlook on the bike share scene.
We look forward to your suggestions.
Rugged Cycles deployed a 300 bike bike share system with seven stations in the summer of 2013! This winter the system is expected to expand to 500 bikes. I am sure that this is the largest University bike share program, in fact it is probably the largest bike share program in the State of Texas – and you know how they like everything BIG in Texas!!

It maybe time for the City of Vancouver to take a look at the investment they made into the Helmet/bike share system locally built by the SandVault Group!
SandVault’s equipment has been the only profitable bike share system that I know about, deployed in Miami Beach. Take a look at Vancouver’s local public bike share equipment supplier: www.sandvault.com
The more locations for the stations the better the system will be for all, hitting maximum density is key with this type of system.
But seriously here is a poll 100 person poll by nymag.com:
My prediction is that New York’s Bike Share program will expand to far more than 10,000 bikes in the next 5 years, as the number of members, (As of June 6th over 30,000) that have already signed up show huge support!
Public Bike Share is simply just a healthy option to driving your car for those short trips, of which 62% are less than 5 miles.
In terms of size, ridership, and financial viability—is in Washington, D.C. How
did D.C. accomplish this unlikely task?
Miami Beach: Paid for by Deco Bike
Washington DC: Paid for by US tax payers
Miami Beach: 2,153,350
Washington DC: 1,851,857
Miami Beach: 600,000+
Washington DC: 270,000
Miami Beach: 100 Stations
Washington DC: 189 Stations
After the second try at a bike share solution, Washington DC has done a great job building and implementing Capital Bike Share. Deco Bike in Miami – second best bike share system in the United States?
New York City with 10,000 bikes and a sponsor of 30+ million dollars will be taking the crown away from Washington.
