Morning Poll: Will You Use Reston Bikeshare?

Capital Bikeshare, Pentagon City, Arlington/Credit: Mario Roberto Duran Ortiz via Creative CommonsFairfax County officials announced last week that Reston will be part of Capital Bikeshare by late 2016 or early 2017.

Planners envision 130 bikes and 13 stations, all north of the Dulles Toll Road, as an additional way of getting people from the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station (and future Reston Parkway station) to Plaza America, Reston Hospital Center, the Reston Regional Library and other points.

Fairfax County’s first bikeshare system will begin here, with the goal of eventually expanding to Tysons Corner, Herndon  and Merrifield, said Fairfax County Bicycle Coordinator Adam Lind.

Lind says there are already more than 1,000 residents of Fairfax County who have Capital Bikeshare memberships.
