Be a Bike Angel with Capital Bikeshare in WDC

Living in an urban environment such as Washington DC, you learn quickly the benefits of alternative modes of transportation. With the way DC has been developed and is likely to continue, the urban village looks as though it’s here to stay, which is a great thing, unless you’re looking for an elusive bike to ride from the Capital Bikeshare Program. Access to bikes at the 500 bikeshare stations could improve across the board with the new Bike Angel Rewards program.

According to an article published by CurbedWDC, the Capital Bikeshare program now has an app which will reward members with points when they take a bike from an over-crowded station and leave it at one which is lacking bikes to use. With over 4,000 bikes available to members, who simply pay a small monthly fee, Bikeshare has encouraged many to take to two wheels without the worry of storage and maintenance.

But not all Bikeshare stations have been equal. Data has shown a disproportionate number of bikes are being left at some stations, making it harder for some folks to get to a bike when they need one. In comes the Bike Angel App. Now Bikeshare members can earn points by helping distribute bikes in a more equitable way for all stations. The app will show users which stations are looking full and which ones could use more bikes left when a user is done.

As members earn points, they can be redeemed either ‘for-a-friend’ with a bikeshare 24-hour guest pass, or to enjoy a week of membership for free. You may wonder how the Bikeshare Bike Angel program will know what stations are in need of bikes and when; the app is updated every 15-minutes keeping the bike availability current in real-time.

If you haven’t checked out Capital Bikeshare yet, now’s a great time to do so. It’s perfect for running errands, meeting a friend for coffee or simply exploring the incredible WDC urban setting.
