I'm an occasional SoBi user. I have my own bike but I got the $15 monthly membership because I wanted to be able to opportunistically ride a SoBi to/from the downtown GO station. The one-way bike-and-forget trips is what I like -- no need to worry about theft or pigeon poop when parking my bike near Jackson Square or in the area.

It is more convenient than Toronto/Montreal's BIXI type system. I got a membership when people started leaving bikes off-rack near my home, as the nearest rack is 300 meters away. The off-rack parking literally advertises the bike share system presence. I just punch in a password code and off I go.

The bikes are GPS tracked and so unique, so nobody wants to steal them anyway, like they would with my owned bike if I left it overnight while going to Toronto.
