Large crowds are expected to celebrate Halloween in Georgetown Monday and participants are strongly encouraged to take public transportation to avoid delays.  Although there are no plans at this time to close major roads including M Street and Wisconsin Avenue, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) advise residents and visitors there will be parking restrictions and access to many side streets will be restricted.

Capital Bikeshare Introduces New Price Structure

 

Earlier this week, Capital Bikeshare announced several changes to its membership offerings, revised the cost of its 24-hour membership and introduced a new pricing structure for casual members.

Starting November 3, 2011, Capital Bikeshare will offer a 3-day pass for $15. The current 5-day pass will be discontinued. The change better aligns with the average stay of visitors to the metro region.
