Wilmington doesn't have a bikeshare system, though there have been talks. The city just doesn't currently have the critical mass of childless, urban professionals that it needs to make it happen. Maybe that will change as more millennials and white collar folks get priced out of New York, DC and Philadelphia.

Neighboring Philadelphia has a pretty neat system, though.

For a city where it seems almost everyone owns a bike, Boise has an impressive bike share program which is popular for locals, tourists, and business visitors.

For another small city (but a bit larger than Carrollton), Dayton, OH has 24 stations and "more than 200" bikes. Downtown Dayton Partnership

All are clustered around downtown and the University of Dayton which is about a mile south. It has been popular.

Baltimore has a new, yet rapidly growing bike share program. The city is building more and more bike lanes, and it will be up to 50 stations by Saturday of next week.

I do too but will still use them....for example you can drive to one spot, park, and just bike around from station to station. It' actually a more efficient way to travel an urban core than really any transit, including rail and trolley (and a whole lot more green)

compact dense urban cities such as New Orleans and Louisville are set up perfect for them, especially with all the tourists

If I'm going somewhere that I will ride a bike, I will ride my bike there. But then again, I live in an urban neighborhood. I guess it could work with suburbanites who don't own a bike.

I'd like to see who they market to.

Birmingham's Bike Share system has grown, expanding in such neighborhoods as Downtown, The Medical District, Five Points, Highland Park, Lakeview, Forest Park, and Avondale.

I think that the system is nearing 2000 bikes and 170 or so stations. Many bike stations are at or near the free MetroMover stations in downtown and Brickell.
This.

Actually, you usually see more Bike Share stations in Urban cities than you do suburban.
