Do You Know About DC's Commuter Transit Ordinance?

Are you a DC commuter? Do you use your Capital Bikeshare membership to access rail or bus, or get to the office from the train station? Make your transportation dollars work harder for you.






As of January 1, 2016, employers with 20 or more employees in the District are required to offer a commuter transit benefit. Our friends at goDCgo are ready to support your organizations in complying with DC’s new Commuter Benefits Ordinance and making sustainable transportation easy for employees like you. Ask your HR Benefits Manager for your transit benefit and share these resources with them today.

Meet 2015's Busiest Bike

We’ve had a great time following the exploits of 2014’s busiest bike, W20167. From its rise to fame in a blog post about how much people use Bikeshare bikes to its stylish debut at the 5th Birthday Bike-In Movie, W20167 has had a busy year! Clothed in its yellow duds, the #busybike has been out riding with its adoring public. Now that it’s 2016, it’s time for us to announce the 2015 #busybike and celebrate a new bike’s title and trip history.

Corporate Memberships Make for Happy Company

With the DC Commuter Benefits Ordinance going into effect this month, many DC employers are thinking differently about how their employees get to work. This past spring, local interactive agency Threespot signed on as a “Gold-level” Capital Bikeshare corporate member. Our friends at goDCgo helped facilitate their corporate membership and recently checked in with Threespot’s founder, Bill Barbot, to get a glimpse of how he and his employees have been enjoying their Bikeshare benefit.
