Sean is right. What will happen is that users will log in, be told that there is no bike nearby and abandon the system in frustration.

Bike share is public transportation. For it to work it has to be reliable. My boss has a weird expectation that I'll reliably show up to work every morning. The transportation system to get me there must be equally reliable or it is no good.

If users cannot rely upon a bike being always available at bus stop distances of 1-2 blocks away, then they will (quite rightly) judge the system a failure and abandon it.

Once again, Hamilton takes a great idea and botches it with lousy implementation. Pity.
