Montgomery County is hoping for some financial help from the state to get its portion of Capital Bikeshare up and rolling.

Montgomery County's Department of Transportation has applied for a $1 million grant to fund Capital Bikeshare in the southern part of the county.

The proposal would fund 29 docking stations and more than 200 bikes between the Beltway and the county's border with the District, which includes Friendship Heights, Bethesda, Takoma Park, and Silver Spring.

The new stations would become a part of the Capital Bikeshare system already in operation in the D.C. and in Arlington County in Virginia.

Montgomery County has already been awarded a federal grant of more than $1 million for bikesharing in the Rockville area. County leaders say the aim is to eventually connect Rockville's system with Capital Bikeshare as well.
