D.C. Bikes is a simple and easy-to-use App that helps you locate the closest Capital Bike Share™ docking station. With one tap you can find the closest Capital Bike Share station, how far away it is and in which direction, and how many available bikes and docks it currently has.

Find out how many available docks there are at your destination easily with the full-map mode. You can even set a ride timer to help track your Capital Bike Share rental and prevent late fees.

Ratings and Reviews

Functional, but corners were cut to make it work


It does what it advertises. It will get you to the closest bike share rack. That being said there are a few problems.

1. "Use current location". The application only allows you to set "use current location" to 'always' and 'never'. If you do not go into your settings when not using the app it will drain your battery unnecessarily. The app should be updated to allow 'only when using the application'. If battery life is a concern for you I would avoid this app until this bug has been fixed.

2. I am always prompted to "install google apps" although I have it installed and integrated with other apps. From what I can tell this bug is more of a cosmetic annoyance than a functional impedance.



The app I've been waiting for. I usually need a bike or an empty dock in a hurry. I guess fiddling with maps is fine for casual users, but I use Capital Bike Share all the time! Which is why I am also fine with Location Services being set to Always. It is worth it to not have to wait for the app to figure out where I am before telling me the location of the closest bike or empty dock. Thanks!

Very disappointed


This app REQUIRES you to allow them to access your location WHEN THE APP IS TURNED OFF or else they won't let you use the app at all. There is NO reason they need my location, especially when I am not even using the app. For that matter, I shouldn't have to authorize location services at all; I am perfectly capable of manually looking at the map and figuring out where I am. Big brother is watching.

This app may use your location even when it isn't open, which can decrease battery life.
