BUMP! (It's July now)

I reply to say -- we just out-bikeshared Toronto.

In less than 6 months, there is now more active SoBi members (>5000) in Hamilton, than Toronto has active BIXI members (4000).

And the area is bigger (45sqkm vs 15sqkm), more stations in Hamilton (119 vs 80), despite fewer bikes (750 vs 1000) due to ability to lock off-station, cheaper bike balancing cost (mostly crowd-sourced bike rebalancing thanks to automatic credits given to users), despite worse bike infrastructure (fewer nice bike routes in Hamilton).

As of June, I think Hamilton just proved itself, don't you think?
