Dear PoPville – How Does the DDOT Bike Removal Program Work?

“Dear PoPville,

Noticed this @ 14th/F NW – first time I’ve seen this. Is this a new initiative?”

We spoke a bit about this in September when a reader asked if MPD impounded bikes. Bike owners have 10 days to remove their bikes after the warning is posted. In subsequent messages with DDOT, they tell me that the bikes are then held in their W Street, NE yard for an additional 10 days in case an owner claims the bike. If they are not claimed, most bikes go to recycling since most of them are in such bad shape (missing wheels, handlebars, mangled etc.) it is not feasible to donate them.
