I wonder if the new kiosks have the locking mechanism that some Motivate systems now have. I was able to try out the Pronto bikeshare system in Seattle last year, also managed by Motivate.

Those docks are much easier to use. Once you insert the key fob, the bike is released automatically. No tugging on the bike or lifting up the bike seat required.

(Unfortunately, Pronto doesn't seem to be as popular as CaBi is here. Maybe because of all the hills in Seattle? There is also the unrealistic expectation there for bikeshare to pay its way entirely. Every other transportation system, including car driving, is heavily subsidized, so it's hypocritical for driving advocates to rail against bikeshare subsidies.)

Yes, Observer. With the new stations, the bike pops right out. It was a fun little surprise.
