Not on the list? Birmingham, Alabama. It's been very successful and continues to expand.

Not the best, but my city, Topeka, Kansas has a decent bike share program. We had more miles ridden in the first 3 months of 2016 then Kansas City had in their entire year. At a cost of $25/year it's one of the cheapest bike share programs as well.

Really liked Chicago's when I was there last (August 2014). Just had a great time not having a car and being able to go everywhere.

Boston has one called Hubway, I've never tried it but I see people on the bikes a lot, and there are stations all over the place. They expanded a few times since implemented. It seems like it works well I've never paid any attention to other cities when I'm there so I can't compare to say it's better or worse so I'm not gonna vote.

I never used NYC Citi bike since I have my own bike. There is a station right next to my apartment though so it would be convienient. It must also be nice to not have to worry about your bike being stolen all the time.

Denver has a good system. 88 stations and 700 bikes throughout ten central Denver neighborhoods.

DC. I didn't even know bike sharing was a thing until I moved there. And it's not just the touristy areas of the district. You can go into NOVA and find them, and in normal suburban neighborhoods too, not just places like Old Town or Clarendon.

Of the cities I have recently or currently live in both Minneapolis and DC have great bike share programs.

DC's is very popular. I've read that Chicago is great as well. Kudos to Atlanta and Houston (not listed in the poll for some reason) for having growing bike share networks. Both are expanding. Wish Houston get rid of the stupid basket that's in the front though of their bikes though.
