SERVICE ALERT: Morning Corrals Closing in December



While many of you continue to ride come rain, sleet or snow, a sure sign of winter for us is the decline in daily rides. As demand for bikes at peak hours drops below its summer highs, we’ll be phasing out morning Corral Service at downtown stations for the year in December. Corral Service will resume in early spring.

Corral Service ending 12/9/2016
  • 20th St & Virginia Ave NW
  • Maryland Ave & Independence Ave SW
Corral Service ending 12/23/2016
  • 21st St & Eye St NW
  • 17th St & K St NW
  • 13th St & New York Ave NW

Happy holidays from all of our Corral Service attendants, operations staff and friends. See you next year!

Community Partnerships See Success

In the development of the Community Partners Program, we wanted to create a program that would provide much-needed transportation to those in need in our communities. By making annual memberships available to clients of needs-based community organizations for just $5 and providing helmets at no additional cost, Capital Bikeshare can offer 24/7/365 access to transportation at a low cost. Witness Mr. Warren Geddie, who signed up in July through our partnership with Whitman-Walker Health’s (WWH) Max Robinson Center in DC’s historic Anacostia neighborhood.

Share the Joy of Bikesharing



Need a gift for someone new to the area, looking for more activity or just in need of a new way to get around? Capital Bikeshare gift certificates are perfect for anyone who finds themselves on the move in and around our area.

Memberships let you checkout a bike from any of our 430 stations in the District, Arlington, Alexandria, Montgomery County and Fairfax County. Use it to explore new neighborhoods, get to work, take advantage of awesome deals from our Member Benefits partners and show your out-of-town friends the sights.

That’s 365 days of access to bikes for as many under-30 minute trips as you can make - all for just $85. It’s easy and they’ll thank you for a great gift for the next year.
