Afternoon Poll: Will You Use Capital Bikeshare In Bethesda?

by BethesdaNow.com — February 6, 2013 at 1:45 pm 1 Comment

Capital Bikeshare is coming to Bethesda (probably this summer) and its pending introduction has caused some friction between bike advocates and residents who say it will be unsafe for both drivers and pedestrians on sidewalks.

Even with stations planned in Chevy Chase and Bethesda, a vocal contingent of Chevy Chase residents are against a planned Wisconsin Avenue sidewalk that would theoretically connect the commercial downtown areas of Friendship Heights and Bethesda.

With those issues in mind and the success the Capital Bikeshare has seen in D.C. and Arlington, what’s your take on Bikeshare?

Vote in the poll below and feel free to leave any other comments.

    I should say I actually live in Silver Spring, but can’t wait to be able to bike from Silver Spring to Bethesda via the trail on weekends to have lunch. I already walk or take the J2, biking just adds an additional mode!
