New York has Citibike, Chicago has Divvy and now Seattle joins other cities in the U.S. and around the world in launching an official bike-sharing program. On Monday, the city rolled out Pronto bicycles at 50 stations around the city.
Each city has its own way to do this, with different rules and different types of bikes. Seattle partnered with Pronto Cycle Share, which provides rentals of 500 bicycles.
The bikes have seven speeds, and docking stations are in the University District, Pioneer Square, downtown and other locations.

Divvy has nearly 3,000 bikes at almost 300 stations, with an additional 1,000 bikes and 100 stations to come next spring.
