To locate docking stations on and around campus, check out the Capital Bikeshare System Map. Please remember Capital Bikeshare Single Trips are for 30 minutes and all bikes must be returned to a Capital Bikeshare docking station. To avoid additional fees, single trips should be under 30 minutes and you should wait for the green light on the dock to confirm it is locked. Please contact Capital Bikeshare with any trip questions.
