Vision Zero Bikeshare bikes

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and Bikeshare today put 30 safety-themed Bikeshare bikes into circulation near Dupont Circle.

The new bikes can be rented from the Bikeshare docks at Massachusetts Avenue and Dupont Circle NW.

The bikes bear custom-made wheels to promote D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s Vision Zero initiative, which aims to eliminate bike fatalities and serious injuries by 2024.

As part of the new initiative, DDOT is asking Capital Bikeshare riders to “Bikeshare their safety stories” by tweeting at the @DCVisionZero Twitter account. Additionally, riders are being asked to report unsafe intersections and roads on DDOT’s Vision Zero Safety Map.
