Please let us know what you think about Arlington’s Capital Bikeshare TDP and its draft final expansion plan.

Scenario 4 (Trail-focused expansion) is the worst scenario if it places Capital Bikeshare stations in the parks and natural areas thr

Scenario 4 (Trail-focused expansion) is the worst scenario if it places Capital Bikeshare stations in the parks and natural areas through which these trails travel. The stations and their large unsightly signs will clutter the parks and detract from the public's enjoyment of the parks and the trails. Paving for the stations will create impermeable surfaces, increasing run-off into nearby streams and the Chesapeake Bay. Construction of the stations will destroy green space. Increased mowing around the stations will adversely affect natural areas near the trails.

Any Bikeshare stations near the trails must be located on surfaces that are already paved, especially those already used for transportation purposes. It is better to reallocate transportation uses (for example, from parking spaces to Bikeshare stations) that to pave over green areas to create Bikeshare stations.
