Great news for our community members. The DC Center will embark on expanding its Capital Bikeshare community partners program to include community members. Previously Capital Bikeshare memberships were only given to Center Global participants due to the needs of the people Center Global served. We believe that as a center for the community, we should do everything we can for members who may need assistance. The DC Center is able to offer our clients a Capital Bikeshare annual membership for only $5. Clients with this membership will receive extended ride times, classes with the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, and, of course, a free Capital Bikeshare helmet.
How does this work
To be eligible you would be required to be an active member of one of the groups that meet at the center, for example : The youth working group, HIV Working Group , PFLAG, Gay District, Poly and Bi groups.
Facilitators of The DC Center groups are able to recommend participants who may need access to this service. This is fairly new and we are working on some of the details. For now facilitators of these groups can write a letter of recommendation as to why each member should be enrolled, participants will then visit the center on a Monday or Wednesday with letter in hand to enroll,along with their $5 membership fee. Memberships are not determined based on income, membership is based on your participation in these groups.
