Can't wait to try it!

Not only does the shelter look nice - IT IS NICE.

There is indeed a need for more sheltered bike parking throughout the County, but you have to start somewhere.

p.s. - I believe the sheltering of bikes at the East Falls Church Metro comes from the bridging of I-66 above, not a actual bike shelter.

This is not the first bike shelter in Arlington. WMATA has provided sheltered bicycle parking at the East Falls Church Metro station for at least a half-dozen years.

The new shelter in Shirlington looks nice, but similar ones have long been desperately needed near the Metrorail stations in Ballston, Virginia Square, Clarendon, Crystal City, Pentagon City, etc.

Arlington was awarded federal Transportation Enhancement funds several years ago to upgrade bicycle parking facilities at Metrorail stations and has yet to implement this funded and much-needed project. Much more could be done to improve bicycle facilities in Arlington if previously funded bicycle projects were implemented expeditiously.
