Arlington wants to hear from public on future of Bikeshare

Arlington is planning for the future of its segment of Capital Bikeshare and wants to hear from the public.

The county is working on a Transit Development Plan that would prepare for the next six years of bike-sharing. An online forum opened this week to let people share their

opinions on the plan and four potential expansion scenarios. The forum is open through Friday, April 13.

The online forum is specifically for comments on this plan and the four expansion scenarios listed. If you have ideas for sites where Bikeshare stations could be added down the line, you can use the “Suggest a Station” map.

There will also be a public meeting to let people comment on the plan and the expansion options, if you’re the kind of person who would prefer to interact with other human beings.

This meeting will be on Thursday, March 29, from 7 to 9 p.m. at George Mason University’s Arlington campus (3351 North Fairfax Dr.).

Another meeting will be held over the summer for people to learn about the results of this plan. It is scheduled for Wednesday, June 27, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Arlington County Central Library’s auditorium (1015 North Quincy St.).

Arlington has 26 Bikeshare stations open now and another 24 stations set to open this spring. The county also plans to add 25 stations in 2013.
