From WTOP News:
WASHINGTON — It began as a pilot program, but now D.C.’s Smartbike program is peddling toward a huge expansion.
By summer, the D.C. Department of Transportation will have expanded the current Smartbike system from 10 racks to 50 racks.
“We are already seeing that the vast amount of usage is commuting,” DDOT Director Gabe Klein tells WTOP. “This will be a pretty drastic expansion of the program, and this is what we set out to do when we launched it.”
The expansion will bring the total number of bikes on the city’s streets to around 500.
