Each year since 2010 (the first year large-scale bikeshare networks appeared in the US), BeyondDC has counted every bikesharing station in America, and ranked every city with a bikesharing network in order of most stations.

Notes: Systems marked with a ~ are stationless bikeshare networks, in which each bike contains a lock and can be docked anywhere. The number of “stations” reported for three of these four systems (Phoenix, Tampa, and Orlando) is approximate and is was calculated by dividing the overall number of bicycles by 8. The fourth system, Hailey, has only six bikes but they’re located in two distinct clusters, so it seems most appropriate to report two stations.
Counting the number of bikes rather than stations would be a more accurate way to rank systems, but that information is more difficult and time-consuming to obtain.
Systems covering multiple jurisdictions are counted either together or separately depending on how they choose to represent themselves. Thus Bay Area Bikeshare is counted as a single system, while Denver B-Cycle and Boulder B-Cycle are counted separately.
