This page comments on that, using DC as an example. Looking at the whole picture, as you suggest:

This alone justifies running any public transportation option at a deficit, especially bike share. Fiscal sustainability should be welcomed, but as a side-benefit. The number one metric in determining success should be ridership, e.g. vehicle miles prevented. One million rides in Cabi’s first year have accrued nearly 890,000 miles. At 39 cents per potential vehicle miles prevented, Capital Bikeshare gave DC taxpayers a maximum net savings of almost $350,000 in its first year.
