Bikeshare is affordable for many – but for some folks it still may be a challenge. Free bikeshare memberships are available for those who meet income eligibility requirements. The program is called “JARC” – Job Access Reverse Commute. Qualified individuals will receive free membership in Capital Bikeshare and free bike safety training, a free helmet, and route planning.
Those who are currently receiving assistance through any Montgomery County social services organizations – or who may qualify through other low income criteria – should contact Commuter Services at (240) 777-8380 or or submit an application (PDF) via email mcdot.CommuterServices@montgomerycountymd.gov. Businesses and other organizations are also encouraged to contact Commuter Services at that number if they have interested employees or clients.
For information on transit connections to these Bikeshare stations as well as many other transportation resources, visit MCDOT’s website.
JARC is only available for a limited time. Applications will be accepted until at least early 2015. For more information on the deadline, contact Commuter Services.
