To use Capital Bikeshare, you must first become a member. There are six membership options: 24-hour, 3-day, daily key, monthly, annual or annual installment. Once you're a member, you will get the first 30 minutes of each trip free and pay an additional fee for every 30 minute period thereafter.
Membership and Usage Fees
|Daily Key||$10 + $7/day|
|Annual with Monthly Installments||$84 (12 monthly payments of $7)|
You can take as many trips as you'd like during your membership period and the first 30 minutes of each trip are free! After the first 30 minutes, you will be charged an additional fee based on the rates shown below. For example, a 90-minute trip would cost you nothing for the 1st 30-minute period, $1.50 for the second 30 minutes, and $3.00 for the third - for a total of $4.50 for the whole trip.
The Daily Key membership option is ideal for riders who use the system on an irregular basis, but wish to avoid the hassle of the touch-screen purchase when they're ready to take a trip. The Daily Key membership costs just $10 and provides the member with a system key, same as annual and monthly members. When you purchase a Daily Key membership, one 24-Hour access period is preloaded into your system key, just activate your key online to begin using it. After your initial 24-Hour access period expires, simply purchase additional 24-Hour access period by using your key to unlock a bicycle from any station. Your card on file will be automatically charged $7 for the new 24-Hour access period.
If you would like to take a bike for an extended period of time, we recommend that you rent a bike from a local bike rental shop.
