CaBi Bike Shortage
The main problem with the Capital Bikeshare system is that the stations closest to my home are regularly out of bikes due to high demand. The docking station in front of Giant on Park Road NW must be one of the most popular ones in the system. On weekday mornings, it's usually empty by 8:00 am, and it's low on bikes or completely empty of bikes all weekend, even in the late night hours. They regularly bring bikes back in the CaBi minivan, but they really need to install more stations and more bikes in the heart of Columbia Heights. Downtown, I generally never have a problem getting a bike, or finding a convenient station, but it's a different situation here in the heart of Ward 1.
