Is Hyattsville a good spot for Capital Bikeshare? Dave Murphy, of Greater Greater Washington says so.
West Hyattsville already has the highest bicycle mode share of any Metro station, according to Murphy. He writes:
"By virtue of the city's permeable street grid layout, the excess roadway on Queens Chapel Road, and its multiple transit, shopping, residential, and other destinations, Hyattsville might be the best place in the DC area to set up a suburban bike sharing network. Assuming Capital Bikeshare expansion within the District brings the system up Rhode Island Avenue towards Mount Rainier, this system could help link the entire Route 1 corridor together while reducing congestion along this well-traveled route."
