More stations, more customers, more trips and better cost recovery. Arlington’s Capital Bikeshare system has had a fantastic year so far in 2014 with increased ridership and continued growth of the network to 75 stations!

Oh my gawd there's going to be one a block from my house! Of course it's scheduled to be installed AFTER I finish my masters program in Va. Square. I find it a bit frustrating though, that the installation dates of the EFC stations have been pushed so far out. The bike parking there is bursting at the seams every day. I think the western corner of the county would be a really strong market for bikeshare...if we could just get some stations.

Yeah, too bad about EFC, but I'm happy at least that using bikeshare bikes to get to metro (or anywhere else) will be an easy option for my kids when they are old enough to fit the bikes.

Once again, blatent favoritism of East Westover over West Westover.:mad::rolleyes:

14th and Ohio? Really? Wouldn't this be better over at Madison Manor Park to better serve the WOD?

The mobile BikeArlington site isn't working on my phone. I can see the menu options, but none of the pages are accessible.

I can see the desktop webpages on my phone though. I'm using a Galaxy S5. (Awesome phone, by the way.)

Sounds like you didn't scroll all the way down. In the mobile version the menu options load at the top of each page.

OK. But shouldn't the page appear at the top of the screen? I can see it now, but there seems to be a blank page at the top.

...

National Airport CaBi - yes, please.

Gravelly Point - interesting.

Arlington Cemetery - good, but the trail crossings at Memorial Bridge also need to be made safer. Let's hope the NPS gets moving on their Memorial Circle project.

I'm extremely happy to see that Arlington National Cemetery is getting a station next year at the entrance. It seems every time I go there I see yet another CaBi rider who is disappointed that they have no good options for docking their bike.

Other than that, I'm pleased to see that Lee Highway corridor will become more complete.

Is it just a total nonstarter to get a station at the Pentagon? I would guess that it is the largest bus station in NOVA and there are a ton of tourists there. If not there, then one at the bus station on Army Navy Drive across from Macy's would be awesome. The ones in Pentagon City are too far west for a lot of people (like me).
