The regionwide Capital Bikeshare is scheduled to open in Falls Church on Wednesday (May 8).
There are 11 new stations in total, with six located either on Broad Street or within one block of it, according to Falls Church Communications Director Susan Finarelli. Other new stations include one at the West Falls Church Metro and one near a bicycle trail near Tripps Run Creek.
The stations are planned to activate this week for a “soft opening” with an official ribbon-cutting planned Monday (May 13), according to Finarelli.
The stations offer bicycles to rent through a membership and can be ridden to any other Capital Bikeshare station.
“We’re excited to be connecting to the regional network,” said Finarelli.
Finarelli said the opening is planned for 6:30 p.m. at the Capital Bikeshare station between Clare & Don’s Beach Shack and The State Theater on N. Washington Street.
