Bikeshare stations may soon expand to university campuses in D.C.
The popular two-wheeled transportation program Capital Bikeshare will open its first station on a university campus on Thursday.
Gallaudet is the first university in D.C. to host a bikeshare station, and D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray says he believes other schools will soon follow Gallaudet's lead.
"We are trying to get people out of automobiles, and certainly bikes represent a good way to get people around the city without the environmental consequences," says Gray.
Capital Bikeshare continues to grow in DC, with more than 165 stations. The program just recorded its 2 millionth ride.
And Gray says the goal is to add 84 new bikeshare stations in DC by the end of the year.
