Starting March 18, we’re increasing our Capital Bikeshare Plus fleet to 500 ebikes. When this rollout is complete, approximately one-in-eight Capital Bikeshare bikes will be electric!
Because the ebikes have a higher cost than classic bikes and in order to support this new product and related operations, when you upgrade your ride to an ebike, it will be an additional $1/ride beginning April 15.
What does this mean for you?
As we roll out these ebikes, Capital Bikeshare is waiving the $1 ebike upgrade until April 15, 2019 for all riders
There are no changes for classic bikes - ride as you normally would!
Riders who are eligible for Financial Assistance Programs will not be charged for the upgrade.
Unfortunately, you cannot upgrade to a Capital Bikeshare Plus ebike at a kiosk at this time. Please download the Capital Bikeshare app in order to purchase.
Thanks for being a part of the Capital Bikeshare community! For additional information, please visit our Plus Bike page and Electric FAQ.
