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!
Is your Capital Bikeshare membership keeping you riding on two wheels and out of your personal vehicle? Our friends at Getaround want you to know that while you’re out riding, your car can be out earning money. For the month of December, Capital Bikeshare members interested in sharing their vehicle by listing it on Getaround can get started with a free Connect installation. Share your car on the Getaround network and make sure it earns its keep!

Show your key fob when you sign up for any membership at their downtown location to skip the enrollment fee and save $25 off your first month’s fees.

Show your fob and get a Small bag for the price of a Mini (save 50%) OR get a Large bag for the price of a Medium bag (save 40%). Get your creative juices flowing with a bike ride over to UpCycle in Del Ray and stock up!
