Possible Bikeshare Price Hike to Be Weighed This Month

Capital Bikeshare stationHill residents can weigh in soon on a price increase being considered by Capital Bikeshare officials.

An open house on the Bikeshare system will be held at 6 p.m. Jan. 28 at Martin Luther King Jr. Library (901 G St. NW).

A $10 increase to annual membership is being considered, with a boost from $75 to $85. The price for one-day use would be raised by a dollar, from $7 to $8.

“Even with the $10 increase, the proposed rate is much lower than other major metropolitan U.S. systems like New York ($149) and on par with Boston ($85); and will help us continue to provide the highest quality service for the first and, by station count, largest bikeshare system in the country,” a notice about the meeting says.

Locals who are unable to attend the feedback session can offer input by emailing [email protected]. Comments will be accepted through Feb. 15.
