Capital Bikeshare Coming to Brentwood

Studio 3807 in Brentwood is adding another amenity: bikesharing.

The new apartment building at 3807 Rhode Island Ave., will install a Capital Bikeshare rack on Thursday, April 18, extending the popular bikesharing service along Route 1 corridor.

The rack is just one of a number of interesting amenities at Studio 3807, including solar panels, electric car-charging stations, commissioned art, an art gallery and an artisanal food hall.

Despite its popularity in D.C., Capital Bikeshare has been slow to expand in Prince George’s County.

Currently, there are stations in Mount Rainier’s city center, at the Shoppes at Arts District Hyattsville, at Riverdale Park Station and at the site of the Hyattsville public library at Adelphi and Toledo roads.

But there aren’t any stations yet at the Metro stations, eliminating the most obvious scenario for users.

College Park, University Park and the University of Maryland have done a good job building out a successful bikeshare system called mBike from rival Zagster, including a station at the College Park Metro stop, but it’s limited by not being tied to a broader regional system.
