Single Trip

The Single Trip is perfect for quick, one-way trips from point A to point B. No commitment necessary.

$1 Unlock + $0.05/min

The Single Trip costs $1 to unlock and $0.05/min on a classic bike or $0.15/min on an ebike.

Interested in Ebikes?

With a pedal-assist motor to supercharge your ride, our ebikes are the easiest way to get around the metro DC area. Pricing starts at $1 to unlock plus $0.15/minute.

Ebike parking is free at Capital Bikeshare stations. You’ll be charged $2 for parking an ebike at a public bike rack in the service area. Ebike rides that are not properly ended and remain inactive for over 30 minutes will incur a $25 fee, in addition to the per minute rate.

How to Buy a Single Trip

Single Trips can be purchased in the Lyft app, Capital Bikeshare app or at any station kiosk. Please note ebike rides can only be purchased via the Capital Bikeshare app or Lyft app.
