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.
