You can now rent a bike in D.C. the same way you can rent a car for a few hours or a day. You may have seen the bike rack on the northwest corner of 14th and U Streets near the Reeves Municipal Building for SmartBike DC. The Washington Post has an article today.
- See the map and instructions for using SmartBike.
- More from today’s Washington Post:”SmartBike DC will rent 120 bikes at 10 self-service racks mostly in the downtown area, including near the Gallery Place, Shaw and Judiciary Square Metrorail stations. A $40 annual fee gets riders a membership card, which allows them to pick up a cherry red three-speed bike. Then it’s time to tool around the city for up to three hours. Those who want to keep going can pick up another bike; there’s no limit on the number of trips.”
