Utilization may be tied to visibility. I would venture to guess that the YBP lock-up isn't well-known by most of the able-bodied public -- it isn't terribly visible from the street and the city has not exactly gone out of its way to promote it.

With secure bike pens in high-visibility locations every municipal lot (and, I would hope, a public awareness campaign to drive adoption), that might change. I counted 18 lots in the above post in downtown alone. Membership would reach city-wide. The commuter/consumer calculus might shift if the city decided to truly back the option. (And that's not even including the parallel convenience of bike-sharing infrastructure.)
