Bikeshare Stations in Rockville


Through a partnership with Montgomery County, Rockville operates 15 bikeshare stations within the city limits. Check online for the most up-to-date map of locations.

Bikesharing was introduced in Rockville in 2013 with an expansion of the Capital Bikeshare system into Montgomery County as part of a grant program for low-income commuters called the Job Access Reverse Commute (JARC) program. This program initially centered on the Shady Grove/Life Sciences area, with installation of 21 stations, 13 of them within the city limits of Rockville.

In April 2018, through a state-funded grant, the first two bikeshare stations were installed in the Twinbrook area, at the Twinbrook Metro Station and at the intersection of Congressional Lane and East Jefferson Street. These stations are a part of a network of eight new bikeshare stations in the Twinbrook and White Flint (Pike District) area.

The City of Rockville continues to support the existence and future expansion of bikeshare into new areas as much as possible.
