So, Lyft offers bikes now?
Sure do. Lyft is the operator of the Capital Bikeshare program in seven metro DC jurisdictions:
- Washington, DC
- Arlington, VA
- Alexandria, VA
- Montgomery County, MD
- Prince George's County, MD
- Fairfax County, VA
- The City of Falls Church, VA
That means Capital Bikeshare is now available on the Lyft app, starting at just $2 per ride. Whether you’re going that first mile or that last mile, bikes are a fun, affordable way to get around town. If you are already a Capital Bikeshare annual member, you can also ride in the Lyft app by linking your membership.
Breeze by traffic
When you are in the Capital Bikeshare service area, bikes will appear in the 'Nearby' section of the Lyft app.
Bikes get you there faster — but there are a few rules of the road to learn first.
With hundreds of stations in metro DC, you’ll never be far from a bike!
Wear a helmet
We encourage everyone to wear a helmet for safety. (Don’t worry — helmet hair is cool now.)
Financial Assistance Programs
Lyft is working closely with metro DC, Community Partners Program and MCLiberty to offer discounted membership to qualifying residents for a fun, easy and affordable way to get around.
