Capital Bikeshare, the regional cycling program started by Arlington County and the District, plans to add new stations this week.
“Capital Bikeshare is an integral part of Arlington’s commitment to cycling and to providing transportation options,” County Board Chairman Chris Zimmerman said in a statement. “Bringing the red bikes to the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor this year will make cycling more convenient for Metro area commuters, and will offer our community another car-free, healthy transportation choice.
The new locations are:
- • North Lynn Street and 19th Street in Rosslyn
- • Wilson Boulevard and North Fort Myer Drive in Rosslyn
- • North Pierce Street and Clarendon Boulevard in Rosslyn
- • 15th Street and North Uhle Street in Courthouse.
Memberships are $75 for a year, $12 per month and $5 per day. Members who sign up for longer than a day receive palm-size cards that have bar codes and slip into a slot to release a bike.
The first 30 minutes of each ride are free. Then the meter starts running — $1.50 for the next 30 minutes; $3 for the third half-hour; and $6 for each 30-minute period after that. The charges are billed to your credit or debit card.
