The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) today released a draft of its first ever Bikeshare Development Plan for public feedback. The draft plan establishes a set of goals, measures, expansion plans, and financial projections for the next six years for the District of Columbia’s portion of the Capital Bikeshare program.
Under the proposed plan, Capital Bikeshare in the District would expand by 99 stations over the next three years, doubling the number of stations east of the Anacostia River. By 2018, approximately 65 percent of residents, 90 percent of jobs, and 97 percent of all transit entry and exit points in the District would be within a quarter mile walk of a bikeshare station.
The Capital Bikeshare program is a partnership between the District of Columbia; Montgomery County, Maryland; Arlington County, Virginia and Alexandria, Virginia.
DDOT is soliciting feedback on the draft Bikeshare Development Plan, and anyone can comment on this webpage, http://dcforms.dc.gov/webform/capital-bike-share-form,until November 15, 2015.
