Become a Corporate Member today, and choose which level of membership you'd like to provide to your employees.
Corporate Membership Options
There are four membership levels to choose from. You only pay for the employees who sign up for your program, and contributions are made annually.
|Program Level||Company Annual Contribution||Employee Annual Contribution||Usage Fee Responsibility*|
*Capital Bikeshare memberships include unlimited trips under 30 minutes. Trips of 30 minutes or longer incur usage fees – see the Annual Membership page for more details.
How It Works
Choose which membership level you would like to offer to employees and assign a program manager who will serve as the point-person for your organization. Fill out the enrollment form to get started.
2. Get Your Code
We'll provide you with a unique program code to distribute to your employees, who will use it to receive their discount when joining Capital Bikeshare.
3. Spread the Word
We’ll send you internal marketing materials to promote this new perk to your employees. Each new Corporate Member is also eligible for one complimentary on-site Everyday Biking Class, courtesy of your local jurisdiction (must have a minimum of 20 attendees to take place).
We'll email you every time your program code is used to sign up for Capital Bikeshare. Your program manager will need to confirm eligibility of signups within three business days. Each month, you'll receive an invoice for the employees who joined and were approved for a membership.
If you have any questions about the Corporate Membership Program, please contact your local jurisdiction.

Corporate Membership FAQ
Do we have to pay for all of the employees in our organization?
No, you only pay for the employees who sign up for your Capital Bikeshare Corporate Membership
Is there a minimum number of employees?
No, companies of all sizes are welcome.
Is there a sign up-fee to become a Capital Bikeshare Corporate Member?
No, there is no sign up fee to join the Capital Bikeshare Corporate Membership Program, only the cost of the membership.
How do we verify an employee’s eligibility?
You can require a company email address and/or a password to sign up for your organization's Corporate Membership. When someone signs up using your company’s promo code, you'll receive an email alert.
If you don't recognize the individual as an employee of your company, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org within three business days and we'll remove them from your invoice.
What happens when an employee leaves the company?
Their membership will remain active until its expiration date. If they renew their membership the following year, they will have to select a different type of account.
What happens when employees are already members?
We are not able to issue corporate discounts retroactively, but if the employee renews their membership, they will be eligible for the discounted corporate rate.
Does bike share qualify as a pre-tax commuter benefit?
No. At this time, IRS tax code does not recognize bike share as eligible for commuter benefits. We hope that as bike share becomes more popular, this will change in the future.
Can our employees get a discount on Capital Bikeshare memberships without a contribution from the company?
No. Discounts are only available when the company contributes to the employee’s annual membership fee through their Corporate Membership.
Can we purchase one bike key to share among employees and visitors?
No. Each Capital Bikeshare membership must belong to one individual. Per the Capital Bikeshare user agreement, keys cannot be shared.
Can we save money by purchasing daily or monthly memberships for our employees instead?
Corporate discounts are only available for Annual Memberships, the most cost-effective membership type. 24-Hour Passes are available for bulk purchase, but do not provide the same value.
Can a representative from Capital Bikeshare present to our employees?
Yes. A representative from your Capital Bikeshare jurisdiction can share educational materials and present to your employees about how to use the system. See our Corporate Membership Program page for more information.
