The omnipresent red Capital Bikeshare bikes have finally found a home on the National Mall.
The stations are located at:
• Ohio and West Basin drives SW (near the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial)
• Jefferson Drive between 14th and 15th streets SW (south of the Washington Monument)
Five stations have been approved for the Mall by the National Capital Planning Commission. The next three stations will be near the Smithsonian Metro stop, the Jefferson Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial.
Four of the five stations will have 23 bikes, while the station near the Lincoln Memorial will have 25 bikes.
