MoCo Wants Residents To Review Bikeshare Station Locations


Published:

MORE: See Montgomery County's proposed locations for Capital Bikeshare. Montgomery County's much-anticipated unveiling of Capital Bikeshare stations has been set for the very end of summer. Now county transportation officials want input on proposed locations. The Montgomery County Department of Transportation will let residents and workers review proposed locations for the estimated 11 Bethesda stations. Many will likely end up near the Friendship Heights, Bethesda, Medical Center and Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro stations. The meeting will take place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on June 24 at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center (4805 Edgemoor Lane). MCDOT will also hold meetings in Silver Spring on June 25 and in Rockville on June 26, both at 7 p.m. The county finalized a contract with its Capital Bikeshare vendor, Portland, Ore.-based vendor Alta Bicycle Share, on April 24. Alta must provide the Bikeshare equipment within a little more than 100 days after signing the contract. MCDOT's Sande Brecher said it will take four or five months from the date of signing the contract to have the equipment come in, finalize the station locations and put the bikes and equipment down. Bikeshare users likely won't be the only ones interested in the meeting. Many residents have expressed safety concerns, particularly with inexperienced riders using sidewalks along pedestrians.
