Gas prices not only have more people turning to Metro to get to work, but more of them are riding bicycles to the station.

Unfortunately, that means stations are overcrowded with bikes and there aren't enough bike racks to keep up.

Now, police are slapping tickets on bikes warning riders to move it or lose it.

Metro is also planning to expand and repair bike racks or add lockers at several stations:

  • Braddock Road
  • Crystal City
  • Pentagon City
  • Vienna
  • Franconia
  • Capitol South
  • Eastern Market
  • L'Enfant Plaza
  • New York Ave
  • U Street
  • Rockville
