"we are working to expand bikeshare in challenging markets (e.g. developing world) and the best way to do that is with a low cost, high sponsorship model. "

But DC is in a developed country, where the dock cost is small compared to total expenditures on transport infrastructure, where there are many tourists, where there is a significant number of people who rely on legacy land line phones and land line internet access (making smart phones less appealing than in LDCs I guess) and where there is already a bikeshare system in place that is doing very, very well, and is transforming the regions transportation culture. Changing tech would delay roll out, and endanger the market already gained - to save a modest amount (in the big picture) on docking stations.

Go prove your tech somewhere that doesnt have the investment in the old tech first, THEN come back to us.
