Arlington County is currently in the process of creating a six-year, strategic Transit Development Plan (TDP) to guide our future investments in Capital Bikeshare. This is the first of its kind (that we know of) for a bikesharing service and establishes Capital Bikeshare as an official transit mode in Virginia. For a detailed overview of this project click here.
A major component of this TDP is public outreach. We need input from citizens, businesses and organizations to ensure that the service expands and operates in a way that best serves Arlington. There are lots of ways to get involved, including a series of public input meetings and online input. See full details here.
A particularly significant date is March 29th, from 7pm to 9pm at George Mason University's Arlington Campus. This is the general public input meeting, open to all.
This is an exciting time as Capital Bikeshare spreads throughout Arlington and the region. Take the opportunity to get involved!
BikeArlington is an initiative of Arlington County, Virginia to encourage and enable more people to go by bike more often. To stay up to date on biking in Arlington, follow BikeArlington on Twitter or visit the Washington Area Bike Forum.
