Outside of Denver and talk of one in DC, I don't know of any others. Unfortunately the out of control bike-theft problem in the US is probably going to hamper much development. It's sad, since so many other countries have had such success with the program.

Miami Beach is installing theirs now. I look forward to subscribing and ditching my rusted one speed.

Minneapolis has Nice Ride MN which allows people to rent bikes many different ways - from hourly to an annual membership.
