Capital Bikeshare has continued its expansion throughout the D.C. region, announcing eight new stations in or around Old Town Alexandria that could be operational as soon as early next month. Greater Greater Washington notes that the Bikeshare expansion should serve to significantly increase Old Town’s accessibility via mass transit.

“Capital Bikeshare will add many new options.

The walkable parts of the city are large enough that sometimes that last mile really is a mile.”
