Arlington Represented at the Capital Bikeshare Launch

This morning, DC and Arlington leaders held a big ol’ press corral down at Navy Yard to mark the launch of the Capital Bikeshare system. The event featured balloons, bright red Bikeshare bikes lined up in neat rows like soldiers in a North Korean military parade, and a soon-to-be ex-mayor trying to avoid his post-election Dukakis moment.

Along the Arlington folks on hand were County Board Chairman Jay Fisette, Crystal City BID president Angela Fox and board member Walter Tejada.

Bloggers at Greater Greater Washington and TheWashCycle are predicting big things for Capital Bikeshare, which is putting 1,100 bikes in rental stations across the District, Crystal City and Pentagon City. TBD, meanwhile, is taking a wait-and-see approach, while pronouncing that the lead-up to the Bikeshare launch has consisted of “lots and lots of hype.”
