Reston Bikeshare Subject of Thursday Meeting

Capital Bikeshare, Pentagon City, Arlington/Credit: Mario Roberto Duran Ortiz via Creative CommonsIs Reston getting closer to having its own Capital Bikeshare?

That is the subject of a community meeting at 7 p.m. at Dogwood Elementary School.

Fairfax County Department of Transportation staffers will be on hand to discuss what had been done since a bikeshare feasibility study was completed in 2014, where the county is in the bikeshare feasibility process and the timeline and next steps.

Last week, the Fairfax County Supervisors voted to endorse an application for the Virginia Department of Transportation’s FY 2017 Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) Grant .

The county will seek $400,000, which will be seed money for 13 stations and 130 bicycles, which will cost about $766,000, the county said.

According to the feasibility study, Phase 1 of the bikshare would have locations at Wiehle-Reston East; Sunset Hills/Plaza America; Reston Town Center/Freedom Drive; Bluemont/Transit Center; Restom-Wiehle East Southside; Town Center Parkway and Market Street; Reston Town Center/Fountain Drive; Market/Explorer Streets; Town Center Parkway/Reston Hospital; Bowman Towne Drive/Library; and two at the Spectrum.

It would possibly expand later to the Lake Anne and South Lakes areas.

See the feasibility study below.
