Capital Bikeshare Arrives in The Little City

Thanks to thoughtful input from residents, leaders, and visitors, the City of Falls Church becomes the seventh member jurisdiction to join the Capital Bikeshare system, and brings the total number of stations systemwide to over 550.

Last week, our operations team began installing 11 stations in and around the City of Falls Church, which will add another sustainable transportation option to streets in The Little City. Soon, you’ll be able to check out or return a Capital Bikeshare bike at the following locations:

  • West Falls Church Metro

  • George Mason High School / Haycock Rd & Leesburg Pike

  • Park Pl & N Washington St

  • N Oak St & W Broad St

  • Pennsylvania Ave & Park Ave

  • E Fairfax St & S Washington St

  • W. Broad St & Little Falls St

  • N Roosevelt St & Roosevelt Blvd

  • S Maple Ave & S Washington St

  • Falls Church City Hall / Park Ave & Little Falls St

  • W Columbia St & N Washington St

Stations will be active later this week, and you can rent bikes on the Capital Bikeshare app, by using your member key fob, or by using the touch screens on any station kiosk. You can find more information about Capital Bikeshare and how it works here.

For residents of the City of Falls Church, a Capital Bikeshare annual membership is a great way to get the most out of your newest transportation options. For as little as $8 a month, you can get unlimited 30-minute trips from station to station. Use Capital Bikeshare to get to Metrorail, make short trips in your neighborhood, visit shopping and dining destinations, and more! Be on the look out for more information and special discounts for City of Falls Church residents in your mailbox soon!

We’re ready to get rolling in the City of Falls Church. Please join us for the official ribbon-cutting and launch of Capital Bikeshare in The Little City on Monday, May 13, at 6:30pm. Members of the Falls Church City Council, Community Planning Staff, residents, and other stakeholders will cut the ribbon on the station at Park Pl & N. Washington Street. We hope to see you there!

Ride on!

Capital Bikeshare in the City of Falls Church received capital funding from the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority. The City was awarded operating funding from the I-66 Commuter Choice program, a partnership between the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission, that uses toll revenues to support transit and multimodal projects in Northern Virginia.
