Capital Bikeshare sets ridership record

Capital Bikeshare set another ridership record Saturday, with more than 11,000 trips taken on the cherry-red bicycles in a single day.

The service tweeted that cyclists took 11,368 rides on a day that offered seemingly perfect weather, an afternoon Nationals home game, a Japanese street festival and the Cherry Blossom Festival.

Bikeshare numbers could climb even higher in the future. The District and Arlington are working on expansions that would add dozens of stations to both jurisdictions.

Metro delayed after train strikes man

Blue and Orange Line trains were delayed Sunday morning after a man climbed in front of a train at Rosslyn.

The man got in front of a Blue Line train at about 10:30 a.m., according to Metro spokesman Dan Stessel. The train struck the man, who was later taken to a hospital for treatment with injuries that were not considered life-threatening. The train operator saw the man coming off the platform and applied emergency brakes.

Blue Line trains were single-tracking between Arlington Cemetery and Foggy Bottom, and Orange Line trains were single-tracking between Clarendon and Foggy Bottom for about an hour afterward. Trains resumed normal operations on both tracks at 11:43 a.m.
