The City of Alexandria’s bike sharing program, in partnership with the District Department of Transportation, Arlington County, and Montgomery County, is called Capital Bikeshare. With Capital Bikeshare, you can choose from over 500 stations in the region, and return a bike to any station near your destination.

Trips are $2 for 30 minutes and is a great way to get around the region. Capital Bikeshare also has $5 annual memberships for those that are receiving federal assistance. Please see the attached flyer for more information about Capital Bikeshare memberships.
