Capital Bikeshare Expands to Montgomery County

June 3, 2013

Capital Bikeshare’s expansion to Montgomery County after successful runs in DC and Northern Virginia won’t just mean more bikes on the streets. More bike lanes, more markings for shared lanes and more signage for cyclists will all be needed before customers begin renting bikes later this summer, said Al Roshdieh, deputy director of Montgomery County’s Department of Transportation. About 29 docks for 250 rentable bikes are planned in Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring and Takoma Park, while a seperately funded bikeshare program plans another 200 bikes at about eight docks in Rockville.
