    An Update on Your Key!

    To our members,

    We know you’ve been waiting for an update about new key shipments, and we’re so appreciative of your patience as we worked overtime to solve all of the issues we ran into during the shortage. The good news is that we have begun receiving the new keys! Here’s what to expect when you open the envelope with your new key inside:

    Fancy New Keys Heading Your Way

    We are now shipping new keys out to current members waiting for replacements, and to new members who have been waiting to activate your Capital Bikeshare membership. More keys are on the way, and we should be able to finish distributing keys to everyone who has been waiting very soon. At this time, we are shipping keys to new members and for those with broken or lost keys only.

    We truly appreciate your patience as we hit the home stretch. Happy riding!

    Fourth of July Corral

    The Fourth of July is Friday and we’ll be there to celebrate with a bike corral! This temporary docking location will be staffed by our operations team and will ensure that those who choose to take Capital Bikeshare to the fireworks have a guaranteed place to dock their bike. The corral will be located at the 10th & Constitution station from 3 p.m. until one hour after the fireworks end. Keep in mind that we can’t guarantee that a bike will be around when you’re ready to head home, so stay prepared and be sure to know your other options. See you out there!

    Key Shipments Delayed

    Due to issues with our supplier, and heavier than anticipated member sign ups, we are currently out of Capital Bikeshare member keys.
    We expect to have new keys delivered the week of July 7th, but if you’d like to be notified when we have keys to ship please email  If you signed up before the notice was posted on our sign up page then you will receive your key shortly.

    If you are not yet a member, you can still sign up for membership today!  Just visit our Join Page and fill out the membership form to get started.  Don’t worry! Your membership won’t start until you receive your key and activate it.  24 hour and 3 day memberships are available at every Capital Bikeshare station. We apologize for the inconvenience.
