Ok, it's a big deal to me since it is across from my office. But today the CABI station was relocated to roughly 10 blocks away from Glebe and N Fairfax. I understand the entire intersection is being revamped to make it more pedestrian friendly, which is great, but why not simply move the station 20 yards away rather than removing it. Is it coming back?

Alta guys had no clue. Please advise.

Use one of the other two which are about a block away?

Is your name Alexander Seelig?

We had a similar question posted on Facebook (with answer!): https://www.facebook.com/BikeArlington/posts/467090876692767

The nice thing about Capital Bikeshare is that it's a modular system and if a station isn't being utilized very well it can be moved to another location!

I know a spot a little ways North on Glebe Road where it would be very well utilized :rolleyes: You know, the intersection of Lee and Glebe, which would connect Cherrydale, and Lyon Village, and Ballston...... Servicing that gigantic new development going in there.

(where is the lobbying icon on this thing)

What about the CABI station at George Mason and Wilson. That cant be utilized very well. I bet that could go over at Lee and Glebe.

Okay, I'll be quiet... :cool:
