On September 20, 2010, Washington D.C.’s District Department of Transportation (DDOT) launched an expansion of their Capital Bikeshare program. First started by DDOT in 2007, the bikeshare program has grown so popular that DDOT officials decided to expand the program, which is now the largest bikesharing system in the United States.

The fleet of 1,100 bikes will be placed in 114 bike stations across Washington, D.C. and Arlington, VA. Riders must sign up to participate in the program and have three membership options: $5 for 24-hours, $25 for a monthly membership, and $75 for an annual membership. For more information about the bikesharing program, please visit www.capitalbikeshare.com.
