Capital Bikeshare to expand to Montgomery Co.
Thursday - 6/16/2011, 8:59am EDT
ROCKVILLE, Md. - The Capital Bikeshare program is headed to the suburbs. Rockville will be the next city to get the popular rental bikes.
The $1.9 million of funding approved by the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board will be used to add 200 bikes and 20 docking stations in Rockville and Shady Grove.
"It will be implemented around mass transit and employment centers as a pilot program in suburban Maryland," says Matthew Folden, the pedestrian and bike coordinator in Rockville.
There's no timetable yet for when the program will start in Montgomery County.
Commuters and tourists already use more than 1,100 Capital Bikeshare bikes in D.C. and Arlington, Va.
Program membership costs $75 for a year, $25 for a month, $15 for five days and $5 for 24 hours.
The number of people with annual memberships jumped from 10,700 in April to 13,835 by the end of May.
