On Our Way to Two Million
We are thrilled to be quickly approaching an enormous milestone here at Capital Bikeshare—2 million trips taken! We can’t thank our members enough for believing in this service and it has truly been amazing to see the type of impact that a transit system like Capital Bikeshare can have on a community. It seems like just yesterday we took our inaugural ride from the Department of Transportation headquarters out to our initial 114 stations. In the last 21 months, we have rapidly expanded, to 165 stations across the District and Arlington. The input we received from our members and the community has and will continue to shape the system as we welcome surrounding jurisdictions in growing Capital Bikeshare throughout the region.
While hitting our first major milestone—one million trips—on the exact day of our first birthday was extremely exciting, we are happy to report that we are on track to hit the two million trip mark this very Bike to Work Week—just eight months later! To celebrate this exciting moment in our (bike) life, we will be awarding the lucky rider who takes the 2 millionth trip with an awesome prize:
-A free annual membership (wooooo! membership extension)
-A $100 gift card to Revolution Cycles
-A classy Capital Bikeshare Timbuk2 messenger bag
You’re welcome! Now if that doesn’t encourage you to get out there and ride CaBi this week, we will also be picking one lucky rider at random to win a free annual membership. The weather looks good for the rest of the week, so grab a bike and go!
