Severe Weather Policy

Safety is extremely important to Capital Bikeshare, therefore Capital Bikeshare may temporarily suspend service in times of severe weather.  If severe weather endangers user safety, Capital Bikeshare will close temporarily and no bikes can be rented.  All bikes already in use at the time of closure can be returned to any Capital Bikeshare station with an available open slot and all user fees still apply.  The system will re-open when conditions are determined safe for operations.

Closure and re-opening information will be posted to,, and Twitter @bikeshare.  Annual and monthly members will also be informed of closure and re-opening via email.

Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring user safety and allowing for our streets to be cleared effectively and efficiently.

Oh behalf of the Capital Bikeshare Team, thank you!

DDOT, Arlington County, and operated by Alta Bicycle Share.
