Rosemont Getting New Capital Bikeshare Station

Lots of Red, Red Bikes

New Capital Bikeshare Station Proposed

Capital Bikeshare users will soon have another place to share bikes, this time in the Rosemont neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia.

Alexandria, Virginia’s newest location for bicycle sharing is proposed at E. Oak and Commonwealth Avenue in the neighborhood (see below). The stand will be located about six (6) blocks north of the King Street – Old Town Metro Station. The proposal is going before tonight’s Traffic & Parking Board at 7:30 pm at City Hall.

Alexandria currently has nineteen Capital Bikeshare stations and the system has been very popular with residents and visitors to Alexandria, with over 105,000 trips departing from Alexandria stations since the program began.

Thirteen more stations have been ordered and are scheduled for installation this summer.

For more information on this proposal, call 703.746.4142.
