It’s taken a year for the first dozen bikesharing stations to be installed in the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor. The next dozen will take just a week.
Three new stations went in yesterday, north of Courthouse. They’ll be followed by about two each day for the next week, until all the locations shown as bright green pins on this map are installed and functioning.
After that, another dozen stations are due later this year.
Arlington’s rollout of bikesharing may seem slow, but put in the national context it’s quite impressive. If Arlington’s network were by itself, and there were no DC stations at all, it would still qualify as the 6th largest bikesharing system in America.
