That's just one fact reported by Jonathon Krall coming out of the 1st year report on Capital Bikeshare in Alexandria.
This beats Metro and DASH, which have farebox recovery rates between 30 percent and 50 percent. Alexandria’s little eight-station system is well on its way to becoming a 16-station system by the spring and a 30-station system next year. Arlington — bless its transit-oriented heart — has placed eight stations along the Arlington-Alexandria border to improve connectivity.
Systemwide, it moves about 7,000 people per day, a figure that’s comparable to the 11,000 daily users of Alexandria’s DASH bus system.
