Bikestations grow to five with Washington DC
A fifth Bikestation has opened in Washington DC, joining Long Beach, Santa Barbara, Palo Alto, Seattle. There are similar facilities in other cities including San Francisco and Berkeley. A Bikestation offers bike storage, repair, sales and rental, lockers and changing rooms, and are located at transit hubs. They offer 24/7 access for members as well as staffed hours. While something of this scale may be beyond Carson City, it is worth thinking about how support facilities could increase bicycle use here. We have three great bicycle shops in the area, but none yet offer rental, which is a complex and expensive business that needs a significant market to be viable.
