    I'm still not reading all the responses in this thread, including from particular individuals.

    Just noting that I'm fed up with the *&^!, so I'm out of here. Maybe I'll check in on road and trail...

    Switching CaBi to SmarTrip would also be very expensive, requiring modifications or replacement of every CaBi kiosk. Unless an independent donor funds such a program, I don't see how that would...

    Then don't read. I already invited you to put me on ignore.

    I did look at some of the other posts. Metro has considered moving to a new payment system, but I doubt that will happen in the...

    As for Metro rejecting the plan, well, both Metro and CaBi are funded/owned by the same groups, namely the local governments. There were problems with CaBi placing bike stations on Metro property,...

    I have also been thinking of the new proposals from the new Metro General Manager, to offer more practical and beneficial monthly passes for MetroRail riders. They only offer a slight discount over...

    The idea I had is that no new equipment would be needed at all. If this proposal were ever instituted, it would be software-based only. The CaBi account and the SmarTrip account could be linked by...

    Here we go with the personal attacks again. This is the CAPITAL BIKESHARE sub-forum, which is why I post about Capital Bikeshare on this sub-forum. That's the whole point. If you don't like reading...

    This is not something that would take up any time from safety, operations or maintenance personnel whatsoever. The software people would program this into the system, if it were to be added. Those...
  9. Idea: Bikeshare/Metro discounted transfers

    If Capital Bikeshare is viewed as a transportation system, and a publicly-owned one at that, why not have discounted transfers between CaBi and MetroRail, and CaBi and Metrobus? Transfers to/from the...

    I actually rode over to the Tidal Basin yesterday during lunch. Of course it was very crowded. I rode on the streets more than I usually do there. In the stretches where I stayed on the sidewalk, I...

    Do DC 311 and Twitter. And Facebook. I reported terrible road conditions north of the Lincoln Memorial a few years ago. (There was construction nearby, but the road was still open, so I thought it...

    I just hope it remains operational. Many of the NPS water fountains on the National Mall/East Potomac Park rarely work. At least the last time I checked them. (Admittedly that was a while ago.)
  14. How does slower speed make bike travel less safe?...

    How does slower speed make bike travel less safe? Bikeshare seems to show pretty clearly that slower speeds on a bike tend to be very safe. Bikeshare users tend to travel much more slowly than other...

    Proposed bike lanes in Annandale

    http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/fcdot/bike/masondistrictbikelanes.htm

    I've never biked around Annandale but I've read on the forum that it's generally not a great place for cycling. I don't think the...

    Rain on Saturday, snow on Sunday? That's what Weather Underground is showing in the forecast, even though temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 30s throughout the day. Maybe it will just be...

    We have been discussing National Harbor occasionally. There's a thread somewhere. I posted a couple months ago that the spokesperson for NH officially announced their enthusiasm and support for...

    I have to agree that there may not be too many new bike commuters tomorrow. Unless people have short commutes, say within 1 or 2 miles, or are already an occasional bike commuters, they aren't likely...

    Expect crowded bike stations downtown for those who use Capital Bikeshare. The bike corrals haven't started up yet this year. They should try to find a way to set up an emergency CaBi corral tomorrow.

    Sounds like part of the issue is the long distance. While two 14-mile trips might not be considered a lot for a Tour de France cyclist, it can grind away at people who have non-cycling full-time jobs...

    You: CaBi Speed Racer on the sidewalks at Mt Vernon Square (in DC, not on the Mt. Vernon Trail in Virginia).

    What the heck? Some guy was screaming down the sidewalks on a CaBi bike, telling people...
