This morning DDOT released a list of new C.B. stations being installed in DC. Check out details here. (http://godcgo.com/home/get-me-there/tools-to-get-around/blog/entryid/109/ddot-press-release-ddot-announces-32-new-capital-bikeshare-stations-in-the-district.aspx)

Exciting stuff, with Arlington's expansion not too far behind!

No stations near the Mall, as I was hoping for. I guess it was a long shot to expect a station near 15th St. SW and Maine Ave. That would have been a nice waystation between the Arlington stations and the downtown stations.

But I'm glad to see that the system is being expanded. There will be a lot of new docks in Columbia Heights and the U Street area. Bikes are in high demand there. But not many new docks downtown. I'm puzzled by that decision. Those stations fill up quickly in the morning rush hour. Then they get emptied out in the evening rush hour. There's definitely a lot of demand for extra spaces at McPherson Square, Farragut Square and Metro Center. I do see that the Metro Center station will be expanded. That will help.

I'm really looking forward to the new Arlington stations. I hope they move quickly with the Clarendon stations in particular.
