Feedback Needed on Bikeshare Expansion in Reston

Fairfax County is expanding bikeshare in Reston south of the Dulles Toll Road. All existing stations are located north of the Toll Road. See the map below for proposed locations.

FCDOT will be doing outreach during August to get feedback on the proposed locations. From Fairfax County:

New Stations Planned for Reston - Feedback Sought on Proposed Locations

(Updated Aug. 1, 2017) Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) is seeking public input on the location of 10 new bikeshare stations in Reston. The goal of Phase II is to expand Capital Bikeshare to south Reston and increase the number of destinations within the system, while also taking advantage of new bike infrastructure in 2017 to make riding safer and more enjoyable for all.

FCDOT will conduct three public outreach events in Reston to gather community input on future Bikeshare stations:
  • Thursday, Aug. 10, Lake Audubon Pool, 2070 Twin Branches Road, 1-5 p.m.
  • Thursday, Aug. 17, Glade Pool, 11550 Glade Drive, 1-5 p.m.
  • Saturday, Aug. 26, Reston Farmer’s Market, Lake Anne Village Center, 1603 Washington Plaza North, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Since Phase II is federally funded, all stations must be located in the public right of way. FCDOT plans to replace some of the existing Phase I stations that were locally funded with federally funded stations, and then relocate those Phase I stations to south Reston where public right of way is not available. While FCDOT has identified several additional locations for bikeshare stations, these proposed stations represent those that meet the criteria of existing available public right of way. The Phase II map (click image to expand) also incorporates input received over the past year since Bikeshare launched in October 2016.

To submit feedback on proposed stations, use the comment form on this page, email DOTbicycleprograms@fairfaxcounty.gov or call the FCDOT Bicycle Team at 730-877-5600, TTY711.
