    CaBi+ ebike helped me out in a pinch last night. I rode a Lime Bike from Foggy Bottom to Potomac Park, hoping to end my ride at the dockless scooter/bike rack near the CaBi station at the corner of Ohio Dr/W Basin Dr, but the Lime app on my phone wasn't happy to end my ride close to the exclusion/no dockless parking zone despite that rack being clearly marked as a "preferred parking spot" with a blue P circle on the Lime operating area map. I rode to another Blue P preferred parking spot near Lincoln Memorial where I had the same problem. I tried emailing/texting Lime Customer Service with no response, then I called the phone number on the bike and managed to speak to someone in customer service who ended the ride, but that was after wasting 40 minutes faffing around trying to end the ride in the Lime app. I was able to snag a CaBi+ ebike I rode up hill to home in Arlington.

    Two take homes from my experience using bikeshare ebikes in DC:
    1) don't expect the Lime App to work as advertized anywhere around the National Mall, but call them if you get stuck unable to end the ride which racks up the cost at $0.36 per minute;
    2) the cost to me of the Lime fiasco was $20 including the 40 minutes of wasted time, the cost of my 25 minute CaBi+ ride home just $2.50!

    +++UPDATE+++
    Lime refunded me $15 for the wasted time.

    In Washington, DC today Mayor Bowser announced the Capital Bikeshare fleet will receive another 700 new generation CaBi+ e-bikes for DC. Lyft also announced at the same event another 150 e-bikes of the same design for Fairfax County. Together these will double the size of the CaBi+ e-bike fleet. The new design are the same as the 2nd generation e-bikes introduced by Lyft in New York City for the Citi bikeshare fleet.

    Saw one of these being ridden in the wild on the MVT last night but didn't have time to see if I could find one to ride. They all have the new seatpost quick release handle which is pretty nice since I often struggle with adjusting the seat. The seatposts also go to 11 instead of 10.

    I'm wondering how they will ensure that these will stay in DC or Fairfax. I have frequently ridden one of the old e-bikes from DC to Bethesda.
