    Some further overflow thoughts:

    There are those who might be swayed by the "more dock-capacity needed" argument, but who may insist that six stations on the National Mall is sufficient. (Six...
  3. CaBi stations on the National Mall, demand > supply (need more stations/docks)

    On the topic of Capital Bikeshare stations on the DC National Mall, something I've wanted to write about for a long time but finally get motivation to do today.

    Right now there are six stations on...

    Thanks --- Interesting to see their pilot program is ongoing right now and through Memorial Day weekend 2021.

    That is good to hear.

    I am positive that CaBi planners have thought of all this, but I just wanted to put some thoughts to digital paper here:

    It would seem to me that demand on the stations...

    I think that whenever I've cruised past the Roosevelt Island CaBi station, which is not often, there have been non-CaBi dockless ebikes and e-scooters there at the station (and usually nowhere else)....

    That is good to know/hear.

    That is great news.



    The East Falls Church station move (in 2019?) was a good one. The old location across the street next to the highway entrance was not particularly useful to anyone for...

    Do you mean bike valet for normal bikes or the old Capital Bikeshare Nationals Park corral?

    It seems there are several new stations in the Nationals Park area since last season. From my count...

    I've often had the same idea. The thirty-minute window seems to me a legacy of the (system of the) early 2010s and hasn't made sense for years now. It's entirely a nuisance and doesn't reflect how...

    Stolen CaBi bikes

    What do people think of the Stolen CaBi Bike issue?

    You can easily find cases, generally in DC, of likely cases of stolen bikes, people hanging around with apparently stolen CaBi bikes. It's easy...

    It's about time!

    Am glad to see the airport station finally up. A much more important station, in principle, than many of the other new ones.

  21. Thoughts on the new CaBi app (released Feb. 25, 2020)?

    Last week, CaBi got rid of the app that was in use for the past three years or so (I think the first official app was released some time in 2016, but the one that lasted to Feb. 2020 was introduced...
