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.

Ratings and Reviews
Great Simple Useful.
I found this app easy to use and extremely useful. Most helpful features for me is locating nearby bikes And the confirmation notification that comes when immediately upon docking the bike I found that most status data on breaks and docs available was accurate however a couple were way off. Another useful feature is the stopwatch starting immediately after the bike is checked out. The most desirable feature that isn’t implemented is being able to locate key dispensers. The online web based map shows that info but the app does not include it at all if you need to find a key dispenser forget about using the app for that.
30 min not enough time
We’re in Nova where the bike stations are few and far between. The idea is awesome and we’re psyched to have a dock in our neighborhood, but of our 30 min ride 15 was going out of our way to find a dock to check into. Miami had a 2 hour limit, which was wonderful and left us feeling like we weren’t rushing. Here we wanted to stop along the W&OD, but couldn’t because we needed to get to George Mason ASAP. Forget about going out towards FC. The last dock is at EFC and navigating 15 min out and then having to turn back brings you nowhere. Great in theory for downtown, but not an enjoyable experience outside of town. And honestly, who’s going to be able to commute on a 3 speed on the Custis from EFC into the city in 30 min?
Convenient and good customer service
Capital BikeShare is awesome. My work provides a discounted yearly membership for unlimited rides which definitely makes me use the bikes more than I normally would. The locations are convenient. I can park and lot have to worry about locking my bike or returning to the parked location. I’ve only had one issue when my bike didn’t lock upon return, but the customer service was great and they easily took care of it. High recommend!
