Bikeshare Officially Comes to Georgetown
The new regional bikeshare program officially has a station in Georgetown at K St. Now if only there were bikes to go with it.
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) along with other officials rolled out the bikeshare program officially on Sept. 20. Now Georgetown joins the ranks of neighborhoods to see the solar powered bike station sprout up over night. The first location at K St. is now installed, and waiting for residents and, at the moment, bikes.
The system will have 100 stations in D.C., 14 in Arlington and a total of 1100 bikes. Stations have been installed throughout the region and all locations should be operational by late October 2010, according to DDOT.
Georgetown Metropolitan rightly reported that the K St. bikeshare station would appear this week; GM also said the planned station on Wisconsin Ave. at the canal should arrive next week. Keep your eyes peeled.
Membership options include daily, monthly or annual rates. Join the program here.
