Meeting Tonight to Discuss Bikeshare Expansion

County planners are holding a public forum tonight to discuss the expansion of Capital Bikeshare into the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor.

As we reported earlier this month, the meeting will seek input on 33 potential sites for Bikeshare stations throughout the corridor. In addition those sites, the county is also soliciting suggestion for other station locations via an interactive ‘crowdsourced’ map.

The selection criteria for new stations stipulate that the stations get 4+ hours of direct sunlight daily, be on flat ground and avoid creating “a dangerous situation for street users,” among other requirements. A total of 30 stations are expected to be built over the next year.

Tonight’s meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the Cherry/Dogwood rooms of the county government building at 2100 Clarendon Boulevard.
