Capital Bikeshare For All

Equity on two wheels

We’re working to expand access to bikeshare. It’s part of our ongoing effort to help create safer and healthier communities, and celebrate the diversity that makes our region so incredible.

Reducing fares with Capital Bikeshare for All

Capital Bikeshare is proud to offer $5 annual memberships for qualifying residents.

Same benefits. Lower price.

Members get unlimited 60-minute rides on classic bikes and ebikes—and a whole lot more. The easiest way to get going is to use the app, but we can also provide bike keys to members who may not have smartphones.
