Speak Up! Fairfax City-Mason-Vienna Region Bikeshare Feasibility Study

Here’s another opportunity for Fairfax County riders to make bicycling better. The City of Fairfax, George Mason University, the Town of Vienna, and Fairfax County are working together to evaluate bringing bikeshare to these communities. This feasibility study aims to understand how a bikeshare system would be used to travel throughout these communities as well as to connect to the metropolitan region. It also will identify what type of bikeshare system will be most successful and where shared bicycles and other bikeshare infrastructure should be located. 

The bikeshare study is evaluating the area that extends from the W&OD trail in Vienna south through the City of Fairfax and into George Mason University. It includes the GMU-Fairfax campus south to the Burke VRE train station and nearby neighborhoods; the central corridor through the City of Fairfax including Old Town, Northfax, Fairfax Circle, and other commercial and residential centers along Chain Bridge Road and Old Lee Highway; neighborhoods around and including the Vienna/GMU-Fairfax Metrorail Station; and in Vienna, Maple Avenue, the W&OD trail, and surrounding neighborhoods. 

The study group wants your input! Study staff will be out in the community conducting "pop-up" events throughout the summer. Specific community meetings about bikeshare are being planned and will be announced soon. 

You also can provide input online by logging into to suggest locations where bikeshare stations or priority bikeshare parking areas should be located.  There also is a brief survey you can take to express your interest in bikeshare and what kind of system you would like to see by answering a few short questions.
