Community Input Needed for Future Capital Bikeshare Station Expansion

Alexandria is expanding its Capital Bikeshare network and welcomes feedback regarding the proposed bikeshare station locations. Community input can be provided through an online form through June 1. The online form can be accessed at https://www.alexandriava.gov/95476.

Each proposed bikeshare station will be brought before the Traffic & Parking Board for approval. The Traffic & Parking Board public hearing will take place on Monday, June 26, 2017 in City Hall Council Chambers at 7:30 p.m. For this round of expansion, the City will add 10 additional bikeshare stations with installation to occur in Spring 2018.

Bike sharing is public transportation using bicycles, and cities around the world provide bike sharing systems as a transportation option for residents and visitors. The City of Alexandria's bike sharing program, in partnership with the District Department of Transportation, Arlington County, Fairfax County, and Montgomery County, is called Capital Bikeshare. With Capital Bikeshare, you can choose from nearly 400 stations in the region, and return a bike to any station near your destination. Motivate operates the system for Alexandria, Fairfax County, Montgomery County, Arlington County, and Washington, D.C. Alexandria joined the regional Capital Bikeshare network in September 2012 with eight stations and now is up to 31 stations serving Old Town, Parker-Gray, Carlyle, Del Ray, Arlandria, Rosemont, and Bradlee neighborhoods.
