Update on bikeshare expansion?

Hello all – The crowd soure map by Mobility Lab was launched awhile ago. It shows a station at Sherman Circle, but the map on the Capital Bikeshare website doesn’t show it.  I was wondering… 1. Does a bikeshare rack exist at Sherman Circle? | 2. Does anyone knew anything about Bikeshare coming further north like Missouri, Kennedy intersection, Fort Totten, or Takoma Park metro? | 3. Any other developments?

I heard a story on NPR this morning about how Bikeshare expansion has been stalled due to lack of equipment.  Maybe that has somthing to do with it?

There is no bikeshare rack at Sherman Circle. The closest one is about 1/2 mile away at Georgia/Upshur.
There is an article in today’s Post about delayed explansion of Bikeshare because they can’t get the necessary equipment soon enough.

Here is a screenshot of what I see.

I have suggested that station, and think it would be perfect! There are a TON of residents within .3 miles of that station that would now have access. I live two blocks north of here, and currently walk to GA and Upshur, but it is a long walk. There certainly is not currently a station at this location. Would much prefer a station here though!
Just checked the BikeArlington website, and it does indeed indicate a station at Sherman Circle. I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed!
 

It looks like the map at mobilitylab(dot)org/bikearlington/cabistations/ has been corrected. It doesn’t show a BikeShare at Sherman Circle now.
