Bikeshare annual discount to end

Discounted annual membership rates for the new regional bike-sharing network will end on Sunday, according to the District Department of Transportation. Capital Bikeshare, developed by the District and Arlington County, launched in September.

The program is currently offering a $25 discount off the $75 annual membership fee. Monthly memberships are available for $25, and daily memberships will be available at the bike stations for $5. The program reached 3,000 members last week, according to the program's official Twitter account.

The memberships allow for unlimited rentals, with the first 30 minutes of every trip being free. The second half-hour will cost $1.50, and the third half-hour will cost an additional $3. Each 30-minute period beyond that will cost $6. Users can pick up a bike in one location and return it to any location that has room.

The Web site list about 96 bike stations as operational. The system will feature about 1,100 bicycles at approximately 114 stations in the District and Arlington.

Why should I join - all the Arlington locations are in the Pentagon City/Crystal City area, and none in Rosslyn where I work.
