Capital Bikeshare members can find stations and unlock bikes through the Lyft app as of this month, the local bikeshare service recently announced. Lyft owns Motivate, the New York-based manager of Capital Bikeshare, New York’s CitiBike, and San Francisco’s Ford GoBike.

“Lyft users with the latest app update will automatically see the bikes feature on their Lyft homescreen - no extra sign-ups or account information necessary,” Capital Bikeshare said. “The app also features real-time bike and dock availability, push notifications, and a brand-new feature to rate your ride, providing insights that will help continue to improve our operations.” D.C. is the second city behind New York where Lyft and its bikeshare services have been integrated on one platform. Capital Bikeshare includes more than 550 stations.
