Federal Partnership with Capital Bikeshare Program. Can you get a Bike when you need one?

From a press release:

“The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the General Services Administration (GSA), and U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced today that they are offering corporate bike memberships to their employees in the Washington, DC metropolitan area through the District’s Capital Bikeshare Program. The District kick-started the program last Monday and by late-October it is slated to become the largest in the nation.”

I think this is a great idea. But I have a question about Capital Bike distribution. I notice that some stations (like the one above at 16th and Harvard) are packed with bikes and other are empty or nearly empty (like the one below at 18th and Columbia Rd, NW). So my questions is – and I know the system is still relatively new – are the bikes there when you need them? I just got my packet in the mail today and I’m a bit nervous because over half the time I pass the Petworth station it is empty. What have you guys noticed around town?
