Capital Bikeshare expansion on agenda for May 25 meeting

Plans to add 25 new bike stations and 250 additional bikes to the Capital Bikeshare program in the District will be discussed at a public meeting on May 25.

The program already is providing 1,100 of the unmistakable red bikes at more than 110 stations in D.C. and Arlington.

The expansion planned by the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is set to be completed by fall. DDOT officials will use the meeting to explain the expansion plan and the process for evaluating new stations. They also plan to share community feedback potential locations for new stations, and solicit additional comments.

A listing of the proposed station locations and a printable map is available online at Comments may be submitted via email to

Capital Bikeshare offers four different membership options: Annual ($75), Monthly ($25), 5-Day ($15) and 24-hour ($5). Additional information about Capital Bikeshare is available at

The meeting location is close to the Judiciary Square Metrorail station on the Red Line and accessible via several bus lines. The closest Capital Bikeshare Station is at Fifth and F streets, although one is being considered for Judiciary Square at Fourth and D.
