How It Works
Check one out and return it to any station near your destination. Access memberships range from single trips to a full year. The first 30 minutes of each trip are free.
Arlington’s Expansion Plan
Arlington has been hard at work bringing more Capital Bikeshare stations to the County. The Arlington Capital Bikeshare Expansion Map shows existing and planned stations to keep you up-to-date.
Suggest a Station
Capital Bikeshare stations go through a set process aimed at finding locations that work for riders and neighborhoods. This brief guide describes how new stations in Arlington are planned and installed and how residents can participate in the planning process.
Bikeshare for Everyone
Community Partners Program
The Community Partners Program is a joint effort between Arlington and Washington, DC, to reduce the barriers to bikeshare memberships for low-income populations. By working with local human service nonprofits to identify people who would benefit from this transportation option, we offer to people in need a $5 annual memberships, helmets, and training on how to use the system.
Arlington County accepts cash payments from Arlington residents for Capital Bikeshare memberships and user fees. This program is designed to make access to Capital Bikeshare easier for Arlingtonians who don’t have a credit or debit card, or prefer to pay cash, to join.
Arlington residents can sign-up for a Capital Bikeshare membership at any of Arlington’s five Commuter Store locations. You must bring a current government-issued photo ID with your Arlington address shown, and sign-up with as little as $16.
