Washinton D.C. Becomes Latest City To Launch Bike Share
"Capital Bikeshare dramatically expands the program known as SmartBike that the District launched two years ago. Once the full fleet is in service, promised by late October, the program will be the largest of its type in the nation, transportation officials said."
Christopher Holben, a bike program specialist with the District Department of Transportation, said the system will expand by four or five new stations each week and will eventually include 114 stations.
"The majority of stations right now are in the more densely populated wards: 1, 2 and 6," Holben said. "But they will be in all wards in the city."
