Capital Bikeshare is metro DC’s bikeshare system, with more than 4,300 bikes available at 500+ stations across five jurisdictions: Washington, DC; Arlington, VA; Alexandria, VA; Montgomery County, MD; and Fairfax County, VA. Capital Bikeshare provides residents and visitors with a convenient, fun and affordable transportation option for getting from Point A to Point B.
Capital Bikeshare, like other bikeshare systems, consists of a fleet of specially designed, sturdy and durable bikes that are locked into a network of docking stations throughout the region. The bikes can be unlocked from any station and returned to any station in the system, making them ideal for one-way trips. People use bikeshare to commute to work or school, run errands, get to appointments or social engagements and more.
Capital Bikeshare is available for use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Riders have access to a bike at any station across the system.
