Capital Bikeshare Introduces New Price Structure

Capital Bikeshare Introduces New Price Structure

 

Earlier this week, Capital Bikeshare announced several changes to its membership offerings, revised the cost of its 24-hour membership and introduced a new pricing structure for casual members.

Starting November 3, 2011, Capital Bikeshare will offer a 3-day pass for $15. The current 5-day pass will be discontinued. The change better aligns with the average stay of visitors to the metro region.
