To rent a bike, you will need to either join the Capital Bikeshare network, or you may purchase a 24-hour or 3-day membership at any Bikeshare station.

If you sign up online, you will receive a key that will plug into any Capital Bikeshare station with an available bike.

If you decide on the 24-hour or three-day membership at the station, you will need to pay at the station using a credit card.

At the station, either insert your key or enter the code provided to you when you purchased your 24-hour or 3-day membership at the station.

When the green light appears, pull the bike out by the handlebars, put on your helmet, and ride to wherever you need to go!

When you arrive at your destination, return your bike to any Capital Bikeshare station with an available dock. Push the front wheel in until the green light comes on.

Members get the first 30 minutes with their bike free and are charged an hourly fee after their thirty minutes are up.
