Capital Bikeshare is DC, Virginia, and Maryland’s bike share system, and the first large scale bikeshare in the nation. Capital Bikeshare (CaBi) has thousands of bikes at hundreds of stations across Washington DC, Arlington, Alexandria, Tysons, Reston, Silver Spring, Takoma Park, Bethesda and Chevy Chase. Best of all, it’s available 24/7.

CaBi consists of a fleet of specially designed, sturdy and durable bikes that are locked into a network of docking stations throughout the city. The bikes can be unlocked from one station and returned to any other station in the system, making them ideal for one-way trips. People use bike share to commute to work, meet friends for dinner, or simply cruise around and see new sights. After signing up, all trips under 30 minutes are free.

The CaBi App allows you to purchase a pass, unlock a bike, and ride right away.

Within the app, you can view all station locations, view the number of available bikes and docks, and save your favorites for later reference. Keep track of your ride with the timer that automatically starts when you undock your bike. Need a route suggestion? Simply tap a station pin or location and the app will show you the best route.

And of course, get your exercise credit when you pedal with a Health app integration.

Happy riding!

What's New

Version 11.3.0

Hey hey we have a fun one for you today! We know that you have a personal connection to Capital Bikeshare, and we wanted to honor that with something fun and, well, personal. So now you can add a profile pic! It can be your best headshot, your favorite dog, or that time you took a selfie while biking with a perfect sunset behind you (we don't condone selfies while biking). Is it going to help you get from point A to point B? Maybe not. Will it make it a little more fun? We think so.

Not only that, but we're running a short experiment with putting the ability to report bike malfunctions in the app. If you ride a broken bike, give it a go! Happy riding!

Want to vent, grip or gush? We love hearing from you. Drop us a line at app@capitalbikeshare.com.

Slow Refresh

Crispy dished

The app has gotten really slow when refreshing since the last update. When I open the app it takes a solid 10-15 seconds before it shows the bike stations. It used to be almost instantaneous.

Developer Response

Hey Crispy,

Yeah sorry about this. It will be fixed in the next version. Thanks for the feedback!

Dock status icon awful

bike fail

It’s very difficult to tell how full docks are. A user should be able to glance at the screen and get a sense of what areas have full and empty docks. Rather than show that, the icons are 80% filled with a bike symbol. Completely unnecessary. People know they’re using a Bike app! It’s a simple fix.

Developer Response

Hi there,

We agree that the representation of station inventory could be improved. The bike icons are to show that you're viewing bike availability rather than dock availability, which switches automatically when you take out a bike. Not that it's a good reason to take up so much space in the icon, but just to give you some sense of where the design initially came from. We're planning a redesign to address this exact issue though, so hopefully we'll earn an improved rating from you in the near future.

Thanks for the feedback and happy holidays!

GPS issue resolved


I already had location turned in but had to turn it on specifically for the app. Now it worked!
