Please see below the message of DDOT on the possibility to have a Bikeshare station in Bloomingdale. As one of the proposed stations is first and rhode island, I hope that you can post the message on the Bloomingdale blog and ask the people who live in the Bloomingdale area to please advocate for one on the corner of Rhode Island and first, NW.
DC Department of Transportation (DDOT) has a map of proposed Bikeshare stations accessible via their website (http://ddot.dc.gov/DC/DDOT/On+Your+Street/Bicycles+and+Pedestrians/View+All/Bicycle+Sharing Under the section marked Expansion). DCers can advocate for one of the proposed stations by emailing comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A public meeting on future Bikeshare expansion is scheduled for Wednesday, May 25th from 6pm - 8 pm in room 1107 at 441 4th Street NW.
