How It Works

Check out a bike and return it to any station near your destination. There are multiple pass options available depending on how long or often you would like to ride. Some of the most popular pass types, include:

  • Single Trip: Great for quick trips under 30 minutes
  • 24-Hour: Perfect for people visiting Arlington and the DC metro area
  • Annual Membership: Best option for locals who plan to ride multiple times per month

If you’re riding for the first time, download the mobile app and enjoy one free ride under 30 minutes.
