Capital Bikeshare Student Discount

George Mason University Joins Capital Bikeshare University Program

Arlington, Va.—George Mason University has joined the Capital Bikeshare University Program, which offers enrolled students discounted $25 Capital Bikeshare annual memberships. Participating students will save money on transportation costs, gain access to affordable transportation that supports a healthy lifestyle, and is available 24 hours a day.

With more than 4,500 bikes available at 578 stations, including a station outside our Arlington Campus at Fairfax Drive and Kenmore Street, students can ride to classes and myriad other destinations.

The program reduces annual student membership fees by $60, with no cost to the university. The discount is open to all currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students at all campuses, and students must use their university email to join.

A Capital Bikeshare annual membership includes unlimited rides under 30 minutes for free and longer rides for an additional fee. Members can also buy a discounted helmet, attend a Washington Area Bicyclist Association Confident City Cycling class for free and receive discounts from partners across the region.

Capital Bikeshare is a regional public transportation system owned by the seven participating jurisdictions: Washington, DC; Arlington, Alexandria, Fairfax County, and the City of Falls Church in Virginia; and Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland.

 

How does a Mason Student Sign Up?  Please note: Your primary role must be that of a student to be eligible for the discount.  Faculty/staff who are also students are not eligible for the student discount.  We are working internally to see if we can bring a similar discount to faculty and staff.  Stay tuned!
