(Gillian Brockell/The Washington Post) The Washington Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is set to open its $9.5 billion Capital Bikeshare program on Monday, the first phase of the $3.6 billion, 2.8-mile rail system that will connect Washington and D.C. to other cities.
WSDOTS officials said the first rail stations in Seattle and Spokane will open around April 2019.
WSDOT said the stations will be located near the rail lines.
Seattle is home to more than 70,000 employees of the company that runs the Capital Biking program.
Capital Bikes is part of the city’s transportation plan that seeks to make riding a bicycle more accessible for low-income people.
