The County’s “My Montgomery” website (http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/mcg/mymontgomery.html) – which helps residents locate nearby County facilities and services – now includes locations for the County’s new Capital Bikeshare stations.
Bikesharing provides short-term bicycle rentals at self-service, automated, solar-powered docking stations sited at publicly accessible locations around the County. Bikes may be picked up at one location and returned to another, creating a system that allows for one-way trips. Bikeshare program membership options cost $75 a year, $25 a month, $15 for three days and $7 for one day. Yearly and monthly memberships can be purchased online or by phone, while the three-day and one-day memberships can be purchased with a credit card at any Capital Bikeshare station. For more information about the program, go to http://www.capitalbikeshare.com or call 1-877-430-BIKE (2453).
The “My Montgomery” website integrates Google Maps technology with data from County Geographic Information Systems, enabling residents to find the facilities and services that are conveniently located near home or work. The website, which was launched in 2008, includes the locations of schools; police and fire stations; health and human services programs; hospitals; regional services centers; Metro and MARC train stations; public parking lots and garages; recreational facilities including golf courses, libraries, parks, senior centers and swimming pools.
