Capital Bikeshare Expands into Merrifield

The regionwide Capital Bikeshare is now open in Merrifield.

On Friday, June 21, Providence District Supervisor Linda Smyth kicked off the launch of Capital Bikeshare at the Dunn Loring Metro station.

The new stations are located at the Dunn Loring Metro station, the Mosaic District and Merrifield Town Center.

“These will be part of a network in Fairfax County including other stations in Tysons, Reston and West Falls Church,” said Smyth.

The expansion is part of a broader Capital Bikeshare expansion throughout Fairfax, with new locations planned along Route 123 in Vienna, City of Fairfax and George Mason University.

For a monthly $8 membership, bicycles can be used for any ride under 30 minutes for free. Trips under 30 minutes are available for $2 systemwide for non-Bikeshare members.

The Capital Bikeshare expansion is part of an ongoing effort by Fairfax County to close the gap between the Dunn Loring Metro station and the Mosaic District, including a recent proposal to add in an autonomous shuttle running back and forth between the two locations.
