The people have spoken, the numbers have been run and it’s time: We’re ready to announce the 2016 #busybike! Please join us in this digital inauguration of a third #busybike to join W20167 and W21852 into the halls of Capital Bikeshare history.

Meet W21828: 2016’s busiest Bikeshare bike!

Counting Down from 10: Our Top Stations of 2016



People in the metro-D.C. region are fans of numbers. We know this because our review of the top 10 stations from 2015 was our most-read blog post. Ever. So we’re excited to bring you all of the great numbers and statistics from yet another banner year for Capital Bikeshare.

2016 kept our bikes moving. There was the Metrorail shutdown in March; REI presented our first Free Ride Weekend; We had SafeTrack; Fairfax County opened their Capital Bikeshare stations. When it was all said and done, we once again celebrated our busiest year yet, with over 3.3 million trips. We couldn’t have done it without you, our members, so consider this list a celebration of another great year and a promise to make 2017 even better.

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.

Memberships let you checkout a bike from any of our 430 stations in the District, Arlington, Alexandria, Montgomery County and Fairfax County.
