2012 TDP

CB StationIn 2012 Arlington County completed a Transit Development Plan (TDP) for its portion of Capital Bikeshare.  The Arlington County Capital Bikeshare TDP is the first of its kind and includes a comprehensive review of the existing Capital Bikeshare system and plans for Capital Bikeshare service expansion through 2018 and beyond.

Final versions of all TDP chapters are available for download in Portable Document Format (PDF). Adobe Reader is required to view and print PDF files.



The contents of the Capital Bikeshare TDP were adapted from the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation’s Transit Development Plan guidelines.  One of the primary purposes of completing a TDP is to enable the agency to project capital and operating costs for the six-year period to support adequate budgeting and the identification of any unmet funding needs. TDPs allow agencies to systematically plan for service expansion and improvements in a strategic and fiscally realistic fashion. TDPs establish objectives and measures of effectiveness to track system performance both in the short- and long-term periods. All transit agencies in Virginia are required to complete a TDP every six years. The Arlington Transit Development Plan for ART and STAR service was adopted by the County Board in December 2010, and in following appropriate planning practices, a TDP has been developed for Capital Bikeshare in Arlington County.
