Its a lot more like car2go for bikes than zipcar - you don't have to return it where you picked it up. I've used a couple different bikeshare systems, here's hoping for a transformation of downtown biking

@frankie, based on what, most of the other systems nationally are doing quite well. I'd say it is more likely that it will have more than 2x as many stations in 5 years than that it won't exist.
