If you’ve been waiting for Capital Bikeshare stations to come to the Orange Line, you might not have to wait much longer.
Capital Bikeshare stations are coming “very soon” to the Rosslyn, Courthouse and Clarendon areas, according to BikeArlington Program Manager Chris Eatough. Some sort of announcement about Capital Bikeshare’s expansion into North Arlington may come on Monday, Eatough hinted.
Previous reports have suggested that 20-30 Bikeshare stations may be installed along the Wilson Boulevard corridor by the end of the year. Crystal City and Pentagon City are already home to 14 CaBi stations.
Conveniently enough, Capital Bikeshare memberships are being sold at a steep discount this weekend. LivingSocial is offering one-year memberships for $37, down from the normal $75 price, and one-month memberships for $12, down from the normal $25.
The deal has proven quite popular. As of 4:00 p.m. LivingSocial was reporting that more than 4,500 memberships have been sold.
