Since 2010, BeyondDC has counted every bikesharing station in America once per year, and ranked every city with a bikesharing network in order of most stations.
|All annual reports|
|Year||Report link||Largest city overall||Largest new city|
|2016||Report link||New York (645 stations)||Topeka or Philadelphia (it’s complicated)|
|2014||Report link||Washington (347 stations)||San Diego (117 stations)|
|2013||Report link||New York (330 stations)||New York (330 stations)|
|2012||Report link||Washington (191 stations)||Chattanooga (30 stations)|
|2011||Report link||Washington (140 stations)||Miami Beach (70 stations)|
|2010||Report link||Washington (114 stations)||Washington (114 stations)|

Notes: Systems marked with a * are hub-based networks, in which each bike contains a lock and can be docked anywhere. Comparing “hubs” and “stations” can exaggerate the size of hub-based systems. For example, Topeka operates a hub-based network with 138 hubs, but it has fewer than 100 actual bicycles, making it much smaller in practice than Philadelphia’s 105-station network.
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.
