Exciting things are happening at the DC Center with Capital Bikeshare

 

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.

DDOT Director Leif A. Dormsjo said in a statement, “It is critical that those with the most need are able to travel quickly and economically to and from their appointments, jobs, training and classes. By including need-based Capital Bikeshare annual memberships, we are ensuring that all District residents can use this healthy, affordable and efficient means of travel.”
Services like the Capital Bikeshare Community Partners Program go a long way in helping our clients succeed. Capital Bikeshare is a regional bike sharing system jointly owned by the District of Columbia, Arlington County, the City of Alexandria and Montgomery County and operated by Motivate International, Inc. Launched in September 2010, the system gives members access to thousands of bikes at hundreds of stations.

 

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.
