By the end of 2015, it’s looking like 21 of the largest 25 U.S. metro areas are likely to have public bike share systems.
The four that won’t: Los Angeles, Detroit, St. Louis and Portland.
Los Angeles, by far the country’s largest holdout, announced this month that it’s on track to launch a system in 2016. Atlanta, Baltimore and Riverside, Calif., have plans to launch in 2015 but haven’t announced more specific dates.
Meanwhile, four other cities started service late last year or will in the next few months: Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Diego and Seattle.
