Where is the Courthouse CaBi station?

    So there I am in the pouring rain, standing right on top of the red dot that my Spotcycle is showing me should have 7 docks available.  Either I've completely lost my mind, or there is NO CaBi station where Spotcycle says there is. Where is the Courthouse dock??

    There's one on Wilson Boulevard near Whitlow's/Walgreens/Iota. Closer to Clarendon.

    It should be on the North side of Wilson, just to the west side of the California Tortilla (I saw SOMETHING being constructed there, and, although I have not personally seen bikes there, thats what was reported on the Bike Arlington website as well).

    Ok thanks.  I suppose the name of the station is correct (Wilson and Uhle) but I was following Spotcycle, which was telling me Uhle and 15th St N.

    Yea, it's right next to CalTort … kind of hidden from Wilson but right off it.

    Saw it last night while eating outside at CalTort.

    Yep, *next* to California Tortilla (not in front).  You know, on your way to that really crappy parking lot behind it.  Hopefully [Image Can Not Be Found]this will help.

    CaBi hasn't always had the best station descriptions (I stood looking for a Foggy Bottom station for much longer than I'd like to admit, once).  But given the utility of using the X at Y description, I can forgive the occasional confusion when the reality is X at sorta Y.

    That helps, thanks.  I can understand the metro name, I mean it's close enough.  The problem is that the location shown on the Spotcycle app is just plain wrong.

    15th and Uhle was the first choice for the Court House bike station. Apparently there was some sort of permit issue with that location so they installed it on Wilson.
