Pike District Bikeshare

Eight new Capital Bikeshare stations are now active in the Pike District. Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett says, "Here in the Pike District and nearby, we are celebrating eight, new, Capital Bikeshare stations," and "these stations offer more options for residents and workers to commute between their home and workplace to the Red Line – and, to visit local stores and restaurants without getting in a car." 

The Capital Bikeshare program has nearly 500 bike stations spread all across the D.M.V. with stations as far north as Rockville, Maryland, and as far west as Reston, Virginia. The Capital Bikeshare program was created as an alternative method of transportation for Washington D.C. with the idea of being ideal for short rides and one way trips.  It is a great way to have fun with friends, get exercise while traveling, and go green by not emitting pollutants when travelling.

Capital Bikeshare program offers three different fares. 2 dollars for a single trip under 30 minutes(trips over 30 minutes are susceptible to extra fees), 8 dollars for a 24 hour day pass, and 85 dollars for an annual membership.
