Former location at New Hampshire and U St, NW

Dear PoPville,

Any idea why Capital Bikeshare moved its station from 16th and U to 17th an T? It’s only two blocks but the new station is in the street (the old location was on the sidewalk) and it took up two parking spaces. I’m all for DC doing everything it can to become more bike friendly and love seeing Bikeshare expand. It’s just too bad that they took two spots away in an already tricky neighborhood for parking. Any ideas?

My guess is that the previous location on the sidewalk didn’t allow enough room for a wheelchair to pass? Anyone else know the reason for the move?

New location on T Street between 17th and New Hampshire
