Capital Bikeshare Expansion

What is Capital Bikeshare? 

Capital Bikeshare is a network of over 450 bike-share stations and over 4,000 bicycles located in Fairfax County, Arlington County, the City of Alexandria, Washington, D.C. and Montgomery County. The City is planning to join the Capital Bikeshare system in 2018. 

For more information on bike-share including how it works, why it's a good fit for the City, and how it will be funded, check out the latest presentation
