  1. Bikeshare makes sense for visitors, not for residents.

    I am a DC area bike commuter. I don't own a car. I own my own bike and use it to get where I need to go. While Capital Bikeshare is useful for out of town visitors, I don't see its utility for area residents. Also I've heard reports that the existing stations are underutilized. I would forego any further investment in the program until/unless its current utilization is evaluated. Bikeshare competes with bike ownership as a means of bike access. It also competes with bus service as a means of commuting. Wouldn't it make more sense to expand bus…

      I am interested in joining bikeshare but haven't because there aren't stations where I live on Columbia Pike. If I did use bikeshare I would use it run errands, make social visits and go to libraries, etc. I don't always feel safe biking on the street because drivers are pretty aggressive and don't tend to respect cyclists. I don't currently own a bicycle.
