    Capital Bikeshare is adding more stations along the George Washington Memorial Parkway.

    Arlington County recently approved the addition of eight stations, bringing the number of stations from along the parkway from one to nine. Federal funds the county received will help pay for the stations. 

    Right now, the only Capital Bikeshare station along the George Washington Parkway is at the Iwo Jima Memorial on North Meade Street.

    “The George Washington Memorial Parkway, one of our national treasures, is a great place to ride a bike,” said Arlington County Board Chair Mary Hynes. 

    The county has proposed the following Capital Bikeshare station locations:

    • Arlington National Cemetery
    • Pentagon
    • Parking lot serving the parkway and Theodore Roosevelt Island
    • Gravelly Point Park
    •  Crystal City 
    • Rosslyn
    • Joint Base Myer/Henderson Hall
    • Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport

    Installation is expected to begin next summer and will take a year to complete. 

    The bike-sharing service now has more than 350 stations in the district, and in nearby Arlington County, Montgomery County and the City of Alexandria, where members can rent the company's red bikes.
