Capital Bikeshare: Where should it head next?

By Topher Mathews

As GM has been reporting, Georgetown is on the list to receive a couple Capital Bikeshare stations. We weren’t, however, among the first neighborhoods to get the stations when they started up in September.

But the wait should be over next week. DDOT confirmed to GM that the K St. station should be installed early next week. It will go in the parking lane in front of the House of Sweden at K and 29th.

The second station on Wisconsin just below the canal should be installed the week after.

The location of the third station is still up in the air. As GM’s discussed, the potential location has bounced around. The latest idea GM heard was possibly in front of Trinity School at 36th and N. Of course, any location will need to be approved by the Old Georgetown Board, which means the soonest a station could be installed in November.

A fourth station is planned to go in front of Hardy School.

GM has been lobbying heavily for two more stations at Rose Park and Montrose Park. Where else would you like to see one?

Near Georgetown U campus or in front of the Car Barn, if the ANC pinheads can get it into their thimble-sized brains that a bikeshare station might actually... you know... cut down the permanent traffic jams that run throughout the neighborhood.
