    And the other three are now in place.

    North Beauregard and Berkley Street. This station is the furthest west in Alexandria.

    Was the south side of the street considered for the dock at Eisenhower & Ike? People using that station will most likely be heading to/from the Eisenhower trail.

    I donít know. The city tries to put the stations on public property. Not sure there Is an appropriate public place to site a station on the south side near the townhomes and apartments on the north side. Since the developer of those homes paid for the station, they likely had a say on the location.

    Probably better light for the station's Solar Panel on the north side also.

    For some developer-funded stations, the bikeshare station site is identified in their site plan. The conditions are spelled in out in a paragraph in the dsup. Beauregard & Berkeley, and Eisenhower & Ike both had sites already picked out in the site plan and in Eisenhower & Ike's case, a concrete pad was partially built. Mt Vernon Trail & S Washington did not have a location identified in the site plan (it was generally funded by the 1199 S Washington St developer) so it could go across the street. As noted, solar access as well as access for the rebalancing van are other considerations for site selection too.
