Terms and Conditions Update

August 2018 changes to Rental Agreement and Release

We’ve updated and revised two documents:

  1. Bicycle Rental Agreement

  2. Liability Waiver and Release

These documents are effective immediately for new members and on September 5, 2018 for existing members. If you rent a bicycle or use our other services after September 5, 2018, you are agreeing to do so under the new terms.

Summary of Changes

We changed our Rental Agreement and Liability Waiver and Release to include policies related to the use of electric pedal-assist bicycles which we are adding to our fleet. Below are some highlights of the changes to the "Rental Agreement" and "Release", but please read the new Rental Agreement and Release in their entirety.

  • The Rental Agreement and Release are now applicable to the use of electric pedal-assist bicycles. For example, we now refer to what was formerly listed as "Capital Bikeshare bicycles", as "Bicycles", which includes electric pedal-assist bicycles.

  • In Section 8 of the Rental Agreement: We added bicycle safety inspection details to include information specific to electric pedal-assist bicycles.

  • In the Release we added terms specific to the use of electric pedal-assist bicycles. The user understands how electric pedal-assist works and is competent to use an electric pedal-assist bicycle. The user understands that electric pedal-assist bicycles provide a different user experience and assumes the associated risks and dangers.
