Via TBD’s Jon Hendel: The National Park Service is moving forward with plans to place five Capital Bikeshare stations on and around the Mall.

Proposed locations were revealed today, not quite three months after the Park Service indicated that it would move past its prior objections and allow residents and tourists to grab the iconic red bikes in an area sorely in need of transportation options.

The proposed locations are:

— south of the Mall entrance of the Smithsonian Metro station at Jefferson Drive;

— north of the Lincoln Memorial at Henry Bacon Drive;

— south of the Jefferson Memorial at East Basin Drive;

— east of the Washington Monument in the 1400 block of Madison Drive;

— between the FDR and MLK memorials at West Basin and Ohio drives.

The site proposals are open for public comment until Dec. 28. You can share your thoughts online.
