Free Bikeshare Memberships Available - Based on Income Eligibility
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.
Do You Qualify? 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 via email mcdot.CommuterServices@montgomerycountymd.gov for a registration form. Businesses and other organizations are also encouraged to contact Commuter Services at that number if they have interested employees or clients.
