Capital Bikeshare has been slated to start up in September, and with September starting tomorrow they’re showing that they’re right on track.  ARLnow reports that construction has begun on Arlington’s first Capital Bikeshare station in Crystal City, and NBC 4 got a tour of the warehouse where all the bikes are getting ready for service.  The bikes are looking spiffy, and the station signs and maps look great too.  The goal is to have everything up and running by mid-September, so get excited to see how the whole system comes together over the next couple of weeks.

Update: Thanks to Dan from BeyondDC for letting us know about their fantastic photo set that shows the installation of the first station from start to finish!
