The World Bike Share API
CityBik.es may not be the first map of the world's bike share schemes (Oliver O'Brien's Bike Share Map has been mapping the world's bike schemes for a few years now), but I think it might be the first global API of bike schemes.
Like O'Brien's map CityBik.es allows users to select bike schemes in cities around the world and view bike stations and data about how many bikes and bike docks are currently available at each station. The CityBik.es API allows users to get a list of bike schemes and bike availability in JSON and HTML format.
