Around Town: Capital Bikeshare’s Open House @ MLK Library, 1/28/15

Capital Bikeshare on the Mall

Capital Bikeshare has become the primary way I navigate DC.

It’s easy. It’s cheap. It’s faster than most other options available. (Yes, sometimes even faster than a car. And you don’t have to find a place to park.) And you get a bit of exercise along the way.

Its popularity has skyrocketed since it started in late 2010. More users, more stations and more bikes.

They currently have 347 stations in DC, Virginia and Maryland and over 2,500 bicycles available.

So, eventually you knew they would have to raise the usage prices. I’m okay with that. It’s still cheaper than anything else available.

See the price increases.

To learn more about the pricing and to give your own input into the future of the system, head over to the MLK Library (Wednesday, January 28 from 6-8pm) for Capital Bikeshare’s annual Open House.

Fun Fact: Dupont Circle has been the busiest station in the system for three straight years. But in 2014, Union Station usurped its reign and took over the top spot with 132,813 trips! Read more.
