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!
