Alternative Transportation Services

The GW community has a wide variety of options to travel to and from our campuses. Whether you want to visit the National Mall, take a bike to your internship, or grab a vehicle to attend a meeting across town, take advantage of our partnerships.

GW has partnered with Capital Bikeshare to offer you an annual discounted membership so that you have more options to get where you need to go. 

At the end of the membership period, there is no obligation to continue riding.

Whether you’re an experienced rider or new to urban cycling, here are a few simple tips to help you feel more comfortable and confident.
