Today marks the officially launch of the region’s new bikesharing system. Capital Bikeshare will provide members with over 1,000 bikes at 100 stations in the District and Arlington County with plans to expand to locations throughout the entire region. The program officially kicked off this morning with a press event, a sea of red bikes, tons of Capital Bikeshare members and dignitaries from both the District and Arlington County.
Capital Bikeshare is still running the Founding Members promotion and offering those who sign up now for an annual membership a black Capital Bikeshare t-shirt and a limited edition key fob. The offer is only available to the first 2,000 members and with the stations now in the ground– these will go quick! The reduced annual rate of just $50 for the full year also applies.
