Capital Bikeshare Launces Pilot with Back on My Feet DC
Last month, Capital Bikeshare and Back on My Feet DC announced the launch of their pilot partnership, in which Capital Bikeshare will offer $50 annual memberships to 10 qualified Back on My Feet DC members, a national non-profit organization dedicated to creating independence and self-sufficiency within the homeless community through the act of running. The ten members who were selected to participate have maintained a 90% or better attendance record on Monday, Wednesday and Friday 5:45 a.m. runs and completed several educational and job training courses. “Back on My Feet DC is thrilled to launch a partnership with Capital Bikeshare,” said Autumn Campbell, Regional Executive Director for Back on My Feet Baltimore-Washington D.C. “Our staff, members, and volunteers are excited to help bring Capital Bikeshare into the community and continue to promote healthy lifestyle choices.”
Selected Back on My Feet DC members will have access to the largest bikesharing program in the United States, with 150 stations and 1,300 bikes in the District and Arlington. Members will be able to use Capital Bikeshare to get to and from job interviews, classes, trainings or early morning runs.
