It’s getting easier to bike to and from Alexandria’s new Potomac Yard Metro station.

Alexandria Transportation and Environmental Services said a new Capital Bikeshare station is now open just north of the station.

A report (page 11) to the Traffic and Parking Board for its meeting on Monday, Oct. 23, said the station has 15 docks.

“In October 2023, a new 15 dock Capital Bikeshare station was installed just north of the Potomac Yard Metro South Pavilion, along the Potomac Yard trail,” the report said. “This gives Metro riders a new, convenient transportation option to access the Potomac Yard Metro station.”

The report also said the city worked with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) to get ten new bike racks installed at the station, split between the north and south pavilions.

“Staff is evaluating the feasibility of installing more racks on the south side of the station closer to Potomac Greens Drive,” the report said.
