The Columbia Pike corridor, long neglected by County services, has the density to support Capital Bikeshare. It would allow alternatives to Metrobus/ART to/from the Orange Line corridor and Pentagon City. And it would service areas of Arlington that are less affluent than the current area. Do the right thing, bring Capital Bikeshare to the Pike.0 votes
Like the length of Columbia Pike to Shirlington, and like the idea of connecting more of North Arl to Metro.....
...But the Custis Trail seems like a miserable environment to ride a CaBi bike. Way too many up/down hills, speed differential, and narrow widths to entice too many Lee Highway area folks to hop on. Any expansion to East Falls Church should wait on if/when more density pops up around the metro, and more bike facilities besides the trail reach out there.0 votes
This is the perfect plan as it brings Bikeshare to two of the most requested areas (Columbia Pike and Shirlington), and connects Bikeshare to all Arlington Metro stops (East Falls Church). I would use Bikeshare at all three of these new areas.
I think we should stick to on-street bike stations. Bikeshare is used to connect homes, businesses, and public transportation when walking is too far and driving is unnecessary. I've never used Bikeshare on a trail, and I don't think that should be the focus.1 - votes
