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.
