Birthday Bash Marks Five Years of Fun

Capital Bikeshare celebrated five years of operation in the metro DC region last month with a Bike-In Movie at Yards Park in Southeast DC. So many of our members and friends came out on a glorious evening for a screening of “Breaking Away.” Thank you to all who joined us to watch the movie, met our Superlative Award winners, took advantage of great deals from our partners, used valet bike parking for your bike or your Bikeshare ride and received fun 5th Birthday goodies. Our recap of the celebration is on Storify - check it out. Here’s to the next five years!

Expansion Science

We’ve learned a lot about how our members use Capital Bikeshare after five years and more than 11 million trips. You use Capital Bikeshare to commute, socialize, exercise and seem to have a pretty good time doing it. Now that we’re getting ready to expand again, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and local transportation planning firm Foursquare ITP dove into the data to identify the best locations for new stations to reach the system’s goals.
