this week, Washington DC's and the Arlington (VA) County's bikesharing programs joined forces to create Capital Bikeshare
with regional service of over 1,100 bikes and 114 stations
throughout the area, with plans to include several other nearby Virginia and Maryland counties in the near future.
Under the plan, members pay a fee, and can then use bikes parked at bike stations throughout the region. A bike can be picked up at any station at any time of day and left at any destination.
Coming in on the heels of the new, modern looking Bike Transit Center
at Union Station, DC, along with one of the more extensive urban bike path system
, the city is making a bid to become one of the most bike-friendly in the country.
