Bikeshare station installation begins in Alexandria

Capital Bikeshare has moved into another suburb. The popular program has already unleashed waves of red bikes across Washington and Arlington, and this week it’s adding Alexandria to that list.

Alexandria will begin installing eight Bikeshare stations in the city on Monday. These stations should be up and running early next month.

The stations will all be in or near Old Town Alexandria. The stations will be at the following locations:

— The King Street Metro station

— The Braddock Road Metro station

— North Henry Street and Pendleton Street

— North St. Asaph Street and Pendelton Street

— Commerce Street and South Fayette Street

— King Street and South Patrick Street

— King Street and North Royal Street

— Prince Street and Union Street

Alexandria’s City Council voted last October to join the network. The initial set of stations will operate as a pilot program, with other stations potentially coming down the line.

Bikeshare was co-founded in 2010 by the District and Arlington. The program is expected to be up and running later this year in Montgomery County.
