We encourage all Capital Bikeshare users to be mindful of their surroundings while they ride. If you have experienced a crash or collision on your Capital Bikeshare bike and are injured, call 911 immediately. You should also call the police precinct where the crash took place and file a report with an officer to make sure that all important information is documented.
Within 24 hours of the incident, you must also notify Capital Bikeshare of the facts of the crash by contacting Capital Bikeshare customer service, now supported by Lyft. We will provide you with a Crash Report form to fill out. The bike remains your responsibility until it has been properly locked at a dock or handed over to a Capital Bikeshare representative.
If you aren’t able to dock your bike, please be sure to let our team know.
