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

Expand Bikeshare into the neighborhoods and to the county recreation centers within the neighborhoods.

The map has the greatest Bikeshare density along the public transit lines (e.g. Orange line), but does not provide available bikes to bring residents from their neighborhoods to the public transit lines. The gray areas on the map, many of which are fairly level for easy biking, will remain unserved by Bikeshare requiring the use of cars or other means to access the transit corridors.

        Barcroft fitness center would be a good location and is accessible by trail.

        For example, for some reason Glebe is marked as a route, but Glebe is very unsafe for cycling -- no matter what your skill level. On the other hand, Irving is an official bike route, with a bridge over 50 and a stop light at 50, and a natural terminus at Thomas Jefferson. Moreover, Thomas Jefferson Community Center is a perfect bike commuting distance from Ballston, Clarendon AND Rosslyn.

        Thomas Jefferson is a destination for many Arlingtonians due to the theater, the gym and the park. Commuters could pick up bikes at TJ and ride to the metro and those wanting to use the facility at TJ would bring the bikes back all along the Irving Corridor. In addition, TJ is a perfect staging point for commuting by bike downtown (through the base) and then returning via Metro from Clarendon or Ballston. This would make bike commuting much more feasible, since the uphill climb back to NOVA is a deterrant for some individuals.

        Please add a station at Thomas Jefferson.
