Capital Bikeshare Installation @ 14th and Rhode Island


As promised, the city has begun installing each of the 100+ bike stations that will constitute the new Capital Bikeshare program. The program is a replacement for the existing SmartBike program, which will be discontinued this fall.

I don't know if you can tell with the crummy camera phone-quality pic, but the new stations look a bit more space-agey than the SmartBike stations.

They look like the velib stations in Paris. Pretty easy to use.

I was just in Montreal last week and they have the exact same system. It is AMAZING. Easy to use and so convenient. Hope it works as well here in DC.
