There are so many great reasons to hop on a bike instead of into your car, and we do everything we can to spread that message. Fun, better health, less traffic congestion, cleaner air, financial savings, etc. -- they're all included in the benefits you get every time you ride a bike. And you've clearly been getting that message! The proof is in our continually growing rates of membership, which allow us to keep expanding. We appreciate your membership and support of Capital Bikeshare, and to express our gratitude, we've been offering "Member Benefits." Through partnerships with various community businesses, we've been able to bring you great deals each month. If you haven't taken advantage of these fabulous discounts, maybe now is the time!
Sometimes, the trip to the vet or the grocery store requires a bit more cargo space than our front rack can handle. So we’re glad to have our friends at car2go back with a new Member Benefit! The blue-and-white micro cars are nearly as ubiquitous as our familiar red bikes, and are just as easy to access with your membership card. Plus, you can now get a lifetime car2go Membership for just $15, with 30 minutes of free driving time when you use the code “CapBike1530” on their registration page. With two easy memberships like Capital Bikeshare and car2go, you have a ride no matter what!
Riding in the cold can be challenging, but our friends at Ping Pong Dim Sum in Dupont Circle and Chinatown want to help you warm up with their new Member Benefit. When you stop in with your key fob and order any lunch prix fixe menu item, you get a complimentary hot tea or soup. Get the feeling back in your fingers with a hot cup of something yummy at Ping Pong Dim Sum and beat winter’s chill.
