Four new Capital Bikeshare stations will open in Arlington this week, and will be the first to serve the busy Rosslyn-Ballston corridor serviced by Metro’s Orange Line.

Arlington already has various stations at Crystal City, Pentagon City and Potomac Yard. The program, which operates in the District as well, allows riders to rent bikes at one location and leave them at another.

The four new stations, which open Wednesday, will provide bikers access to the Rosslyn and Courthouse Metro stop.

  • North Lynn Street and 19th Street in Rosslyn
  • Wilson Boulevard and North Fort Myer Drive in Rosslyn
  • North Pierce Street and Clarendon Boulevard in Rosslyn
  • 15th Street and North Uhle Street at Courthouse
“Capital Bikeshare is an integral part of Arlington’s commitment to cycling and to provide transportation options,” Arlington County Board Chairman Chris Zimmerman said in a statement. “Bringing the red bikes to the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor this year will make cycling more convenient for Metro area commuters.”
