Bikeshare in Montgomery County – Update

Posted on by Miti Figueredo

Recently, the downcounty bikesharing program came one important step closer to implementation, when the Council approved a $2.4 million supplemental appropriation for the purchase of bike sharing stations near the Friendship Heights, Bethesda, Medical Center, Silver Spring and Takoma Park Metrorail Stations. This funding includes the Chevy Chase Land Company’s contribution for the purchase of the two stations in Friendship Heights and Bethesda. Eventually, we expect that the bikeshare program will expand and include a station in Chevy Chase Lake as well, adding another vital local connection to the County’s transit system, especially once the Purple Line is built.

The County’s bikeshare program will be linked with D.C.’s highly successful Capital Bikeshare program, which a Slate article recently called “the best bike-sharing program in the United States.”
