Thanks for visiting the Capital Bikeshare System Data page. We hope this will be your one stop shop for all Capital Bikeshare performance data. Currently there are two ways to view historical data on system usage. The first is the Capital Bikeshare Dashboard and the second is the trip histories data.
More information on the Capital Bikeshare Dashboard can be found below and the link to reach the dashboard can be found on the right side of this page.
The first Capital Bikeshare Member Survey was conducted in November and December of 2011 and received over 5,000 responses. As the largest bikeshare program in the nation, and one of the few to be in operation for longer than one year, this represents a wealth of useful information to anyone interested in urban transportation.
An Executive Summary report was released in concurrence with the Survery, which contains detailed insight on how people are using Capital Bikeshare to get around in the District and Arlington, the impact of the program and the satisfaction of users.

The Capital Bikeshare Dashboard
The Capital Bikeshare Dashboard is the product of a unique public/private partnership between the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), Arlington County, the city of Alexandria, and Alta Bicycle Share. Capital Bikeshare created this website to increase government transparency, accountability, and communication with Capital Bikeshare members and the general public, as well as to facilitate decision-making about the program. It is our belief that a structured performance measurement system can facilitate the distillation of key data items to identify areas needing improvement or highlighting success.
