We’re ready for October baseball in DC! The Washington Nationals have once again made the playoffs and we are partnering with the team to offer Corral Service at every home playoff game during the Nationals’ postseason. That means there will be unlimited docking for Bikeshare riders heading to Navy Yard to cheer on the Nats in the National League Division Series as they take on the Los Angeles Dodgers beginning this Friday afternoon.

Game 1: Corral Service begins at 4:38pm

Game 2: Corral Service begins at 3:08pm

Game 5: Corral Service begins at 7:08pm

Game day Corral Service will be offered at the 1st St & N St station (across from the Bike Valet) 1 hour before games begin and last until 30 minutes after the games end. Check Spotcycle for the most up-to-date bike and dock information.
