You have not explained how it is better. Only cheaper. With the exception of NextBike none of these programs are up and running. And none are in the United States. They're heavily reliant on smart phones, so what do you do if you don't have one? How do they deal with rebalancing - NextBike requires you to bring the bike back to where you go it from like Zipcar does? That does not seem better.

There's a very good reason that no one has adopted this widely in the US.
