Bikeshare on the Mall

Just in time for cherry blossom season, Capital Bikeshare has opened two new locations right on the Mall.
One is at Ohio Drive and West Basin drive, SW, near the MLK Jr Memorial; the other is on Jefferson Drive between 14th and 15th Streets, SW, close to the Washington Monument (the new locations are noted above with the yellow Bikeshare logos)."We are delighted to offer Capital Bikeshare to our residents and visitors as they traverse the historic landmarks and monuments on the National Mall," said Mayor Vincent Gray.  "We strongly believe that a Capital Bikeshare presence on the Mall will promote greater use of bicycling and other sustainable transportation options throughout the five week festival and beyond."

Three more locations are planned for the Mall in the near future, though their exact location has not yet been announced yet.
