Capital Bikeshare Turns Two Today

From DDOT:

Today, Capital Bikeshare celebrates its second birthday, marking the end of a very successful year that saw the addition of more stations in the District and Arlington, and most recently, the City of Alexandria. Alexandria kicked off the birthday celebration with an official Launch Party on Wednesday, and today it is Capital Bikeshare Day, by proclamation, in both DC and Arlington.

Capital Bikeshare launched on September 20, 2010, and on its first anniversary recorded its 1 millionth ride. Just one year later, the system is now barreling down on 3 million rides, a milestone it expects to reach within the next 3-4 weeks. Capital Bikeshare’s 18,000 annual members and 221,000 casual members to date have taken a total of 2,851,709 rides (through 9/18). The system is currently averaging about 50,000 rides a week and set a one day record for ridership on Saturday, September 15 with 8,717 rides.

More to Come

As Bikeshare enters its third year of operation, it will continue to expand:

· Alexandria plans to expand its network beyond Old Town.

· In the District, expansion will continue steadily with 54 stations to be added by the end of the calendar year and a projected growth of at least 10% per year over the next five years.

· Arlington recently completed a Transit Development Plan for Capital Bikeshare which directs expansion including approximately 30 new stations in 2013, focusing on the neighborhoods of Columbia Pike and Shirlington.

· Montgomery County also expects to join Capital Bikeshare in 2013.
