I am pretty curious about the operating cost differences of the BIXI-type systems (Toronto, Montreal, New York City) versus the SocialBicycles systems.

I think the SocialBicycles-type systems (dumb stations; smart bikes) is actually a superior model for Hamilton over the BIXI-type systems (smart stations; dumb bikes). Every bike is GPS tracked, which gives excellent bike traffic statistics for expansion, and makes possible the off-hub parking. Off-hub parking is a good fit for Hamilton with plenty of spare places to park a bike, unlike space-limited downtown Toronto, and allowing fewer bikes to service a larger area.
