I hadn't ridden a bike in years until SoBi came along. It works because it's easy, it's affordable and it's available in (the vast majority of) the places I want to go.

When I rode Montreal's Bixi system last year and I had exactly the problem KevinLove mentioned. Because of Bixi's pricing scheme the full hub ended up costing me extra money because as a tourist I didn't immediately know where the next closest hub was. I ended up going over the alloted "free" time. Losing a bit of time and money isn't a big deal when you're on vacation, but if you're commuting you may not have time to go hunting for an open hub. SoBi's big edge is its usability.

Peter Topolovic and his cohorts have done a great job, and I'm stingy with my praise for Council but they deserve a lot of credit. SoBi is one of their best achievements and it should only continue to grow.
