A Capital Bikeshare Commute for the Ages

It was a beautiful day for bikesharing in the nation’s capital three Wednesdays ago. The weather was perfect, corral service was ready downtown and thousands of area commuters tried Capital Bikeshare for the first time.





The announcement of Metrorail’s emergency closure on the evening of March 15 sent our region into quite the stir as residents and visitors tried to imagine a busy weekday without the transportation backbone of our region. Though our 3,100 bikes certainly can’t replace the 700,000+ daily trips taken on Metrorail every weekday, we decided to do our part to help the region get around by offering free 24-hour memberships at all 370 stations.



What happened next was something to behold. check out all the numbers here.
