August 2015 Expansion Update

We fought off the doldrums of August to install a new station in DC and relocate one in Arlington. There are now 355 stations systemwide!


Georgia Ave & Missouri Ave NW, New, 19 Docks


S. Four Mile Run & Walter Reed Dr, permanently relocated from S. 36th St and S. Abingdon St, 11 docks

Have a great idea for a station location? Be sure to suggest it on the Capital Bikeshare Crowdsourcing Map. Your suggestions often become our next popular location.

From Bikeshare to Bike There

There are countless stories about our familiar red bikes and the 10.8 million trips they have taken. Last month, we asked for yours – how Capital Bikeshare rekindled that feeling you had the first time you took a ride on two wheels – and received some really great stories to share.

*UPDATED* September Events Affecting Your Ride

**Update: Capital Bikeshare corral service will be offered at select locations during the Papal Visit to serve our riders. Please scroll down for more information**

September is shaping up to be a busy month for our area. Please keep in mind that some of the events happening in the region will impact the Capital Bikeshare system, including the Papal Visit, the Landmark Music Festival, The Nation’s Triathlon and the DC Tour de Cure. These events will affect our ability to service stations and may necessitate the disabling of certain stations, particularly during the Papal visit. Stay tuned to our social media channels for the latest updates.

Go #teambike for Car Free Day

It’s always a pleasure to take a bike from a Capital Bikeshare station and enjoy the ride to your destination rather than sit in traffic. Share that enjoyable experience on September 22 for International Car Free Day in Metro DC. Join one of six teams and show how easy it is to get around our area sustainably and efficiently. When you take the pledge (and, ahem, join #teambike) you are eligible to win some great prizes, like one of five Capital Bikeshare annual membership certificates, restaurant gift cards and more!

It's Party Time - Celebrate our 5th Birthday with Us!

Can you believe it? Capital Bikeshare is turning 5 on September 20! We’ve planned a whole week of festivities around the region with events in DC, Arlington, Alexandria and Montgomery County to share the excitement with our members. To top it off, we’re throwing a big party on Saturday, September 19 – a Bike-In Movie!

The Bike-In Movie is open to the public, so don’t worry about a ticket. Simply RSVP here.

There’s more than just a movie too – check out our whole week of activities below and celebrate with us!
