The Capital Bikeshare Tracker is a Google Map that displays the locations of the 140 bike stations of the Washington, D.C. Capital Bikeshare.

The map uses dynamic map markers to show the current availability of bikes and dock spaces at each bike station. If you click on a marker you can get the exact number of available bikes and free dock spaces.

It is also possible to click through on each bike station to view the usage patterns of that station. Each station can be searched to view bike and dock space availability over different periods of time.
