The CaBi University Membership, facilitated by the District Department of Transportation, is designed specifically to address students’ transportation needs and expand access to sustainable options in the District. Participating students will save money on transportation costs, gain access to a fun and affordable mode that supports a healthy lifestyle and is available 24-hours a day.
“This new program creates opportunities for thousands of college students to affordably travel across all eight wards of the District using Capital Bikeshare," said DDOT Director Jeff Marootian. “Our goal with all of our shared mobility options is to reduce the barriers to sustainable, active transportation options."
Universities must join the program in order to offer the benefit to their students.
