DDOT has announced a list of 32 new Capital Bikeshare stations and 18 stations that will expand.

Update: The DC BAC created a quick map of the locations:

New stations appear in blue, expanded stations in red. Map by DC BAC. View larger map.

What do you think of these locations? Will they grow Capital Bikeshare ridership and/or alleviate crowding problems?

Also, Arlington will be adding 30 new stations, whose locations haven’t yet been chosen, to the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor this fall and next spring.
