This morning, the District Department of Transportation announced the locations of 32 new Capital Bikeshare stations around the District of Columbia, the first major expansion since the program was launched in 2011. As part of the installation, an additional 265 bikes will supplement the current stock. (via Latest Round of Bikeshare Expansion Plans Revealed: DCist)
The addiction continues. Although they won’t be adding the proposed station that would be 1-1/2 blocks from our house, I’m pretty excited about the new destinations (and connections). Bikeshare turned me into a cycling commuter — though now mostly on my own bike — and getting more folks on bikes has so many positive effects, including possible congestion reduction, health, and environmental benefits. Plus it’s a great way to interact with your city.
