Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro Saturday April 23

“Dear PoP,

DC Department of Transportation (DDOT) has a map of proposed Bikeshare stations accessible via their website ( Under the section marked Expansion).  DCers can advocate for one of the proposed stations by emailing comments to [email protected] A public meeting on future Bikeshare expansion is scheduled for May 25th from 6-8 pm in room 1107 at 441 4th Street NW.”

On a selfish note – I’ll ask people who live in the Petworth area to please advocate for one on the corner of Georgia Ave and Upshur St, NW. Please! This past weekend (see photos) both Sat. and Sun. all the bikes were gone from the Georgia Ave-Petworth metro station.

Where else do you think should get a new station? Don’t forget to email your comments to [email protected].

We recently spoke about the scarcity of Capital Bikeshare bikes at certain stations here.
