    Default Arlington's six-year draft plan for Capital Bikeshare

    "Arlington began studying how to build a longer-term bikeshare strategy from October 2011 and beginning this February, plans a public outreach campaign through April, and hopes to draft a final plan by May, to be presented to the public in June. An online crowdsourcing site is tentatively planned for March 12 through April 13 and will provide "an online forum for Arlington residents to comment on each of the draft expansion scenarios." A general public meeting to present the final plan to the public is scheduled for June 27."

    The article doesn't have many details about what's in the draft version so far, but we'll find out soon enough. Arlington is supposed to see a major expansion of Capital Bikeshare by the end of the year, up to 70 stations from the current 25.

    There is an existing crowdsourcing map where people can suggest locations for new bike stations anywhere in the D.C. area. Maybe the new crowdsourcing map will have big picture items, such as which neighborhoods to target for future stations. Will Shirlington get stations this year? Columbia Pike? East Falls Church Metro? Maybe they will ask about new bike infrastructure projects like cycletracks, bike lanes and new trails. Or maybe...
