Proposed Bikeshare Locations For Bethesda


Last week, Montgomery County announced a public meeting on June 24 in Bethesda for residents to review Capital Bikeshare locations. Today, the county has released a map of those proposed locations. The county's Department of Transportation is proposing 15 Bikeshare locations in Bethesda, Chevy Chase and Friendship Heights, with stops near the area's three Metro stations, downtown office buildings and Woodmont Triangle and Bethesda Row — Bethesda's two main commercial areas. The map shows MCDOT also hopes to take advantage of the popularity of the Capital Crescent and Bethesda Trolley Trails. There's a stop dedicated to the Capital Crescent Trail on River Road, what appears to be the most isolated of the proposed locations. MCDOT also wants to take advantage of apartment housing, with stops proposed along Battery Lane and at Chevy Chase Drive and Offut Lane. The public meeting is set for 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on June 24 at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center (4805 Edgemoor Lane). MCDOT hopes to have the system open by September. There are no proposed locations yet for the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro area, North Bethesda or White Flint. The full list of stops follows:
  • Wisconsin Avenue and South Drive (Medical Center Metro)
  • Old Georgetown and Lincoln Drive (Suburban Hospital/NIH)
  • Battery Lane and Trolley Trail (Battery Lane Park)
  • Norfolk and Rugby Avenues (Woodmont Triangle)
  • Cordell and Woodmont Avenues (Woodmont Triangle)
  • Norfolk and Fairmont Avenues (Woodmont Triangle)
  • Wisconsin Avenue and East-West Highway (Bethesda Metro)
  • Montgomery Lane and East Lane (Bethesda Metro)
  • Montgomery Avenue and Waverly Street
  • Elm and 47th Streets (Elm Street Park)
  • Bethesda Avenue and Arlington Road (Bethesda Row)
  • Chevy Chase Drive and Offut Lane
  • River Road and Capital Crescent Trail
  • Willard Avenue and Friendship Boulevard
  • Western Avenue and Wisconsin Circle (Friendship Heights Metro)
