According to Capital Bikeshare representatives at the Arlington County Fair, Capital Bikeshare will be launching in about a month. The station map shows 14 bikeshare stations in Crystal City, and a whole lot of stations in DC. Subsequent rollout may put more bikeshare stations in Arlington.
high-performance road bike.
The Capital Bikeshare rate structure is oriented toward short trips. The $50, one-year (limited time) membership offer allows you to take as many 30-minutes or less bikeshares as you want during the year. The one-day ($5) and one-month ($25) memberships similarly offer unlimited 30-minute or less bikeshares. Additional share time incurs sizable fees. Take the bike for two hours and you'll have an additional $10.50 usage fee. So Capital Bikeshare is not a good choice for casual bike-sightseeing. Use Capital Bikeshare to make trips faster than walking, more stylish than taking the metro, and better exercise than sitting on a bus.
