Arlington Resident Cash Payment Option
Arlington County now accepts cash payments from Arlington residents for Capital Bikeshare memberships and user fees. This one-year (2015) pilot 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, such as a driver's license. Or you can show your passport, Permanent Resident Card, or Employment Authorization Card along with a copy of a utility bill dated within the past 60 days with your name and Arlington address. Accounts can be opened with as little as $16 in cash toward the standard price of an annual membership with monthly installments. This covers the $8 per month membership fee plus usage fees for trips beyond the first free 30 minutes. Another option is to pay $100 in cash for the annual membership cost of $85, and the remaining $15 will be used towards usage fees.
Commuter Store staff will register customers and provide a member fob to begin using Capital Bikeshare immediately. Arlington will debit cash members accounts with monthly membership and usage fees as they occur and notify them when their account credit runs low in order to add more money.
