New (and Expanded) Capital Bikeshare Locations (Map)

Below is a Google map showing 32 new Capital Bikeshare locations (Blue pins) and 18 current stations that will see expansion (red pins), most of which should be installed by the fall of 2011. 

According to a press release issued by goDCgo, the District Department of Transportation Director Terry Bellamy states that, "With this expansion we will not only increase the overall reach of the system, but we will expand the program’s capacity by 22 percent in the downtown area, by 80 percent in our East of the River operations and by an average of 38 percent throughout each of the additional Wards.”

Most of the new locations add capacity in the system's core but CaBi appears to also expanded east of the Anacostia River in the neighborhoods of Fairfax Village, Benning Ridge, Congress Heights and downtown Anacostia. Areas not receiving new or expanded stations include upper regions of Ward 3,  4, and 5.
