FAIRFAX - Virginia’s Fairfax County is planning a significant expansion of Capital Bikeshare, but expects to hit pause on any wide-ranging county endorsement of dockless shared scooters and bikes along a major study corridor.

The scooters are already coming.

After a delay, a new station at the Dunn Loring Metro is due to launch next week, along with two other docks nearby — including one in the Mosaic District. Six more stations are expected next year down to Inova Fairfax Hospital.

A recently completed study of the potential for bikeshare in an area largely along Virginia Route 123 from Tysons through Vienna, the City of Fairfax and the George Mason University area recommends expanding Capital Bikeshare into most of that corridor, with future consideration of dockless options particularly in lower density areas.
