With Finalized Locations, County to Double Bikeshare Stations in Reston by 2020

Bikeshare in Reston is set to get a boost by early 2020.

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation plans to install 21 new stations in Reston. The stations, which are currently in the design phase, will connect denser residential neighborhoods with transit and aim to improve access to retail, community resources, and recreational opportunities, according to the county.

The program is funded by a $1 million federal grant. All stations are expected to be installed by the end of next year.
