Washington, DC’s Metro is one of the busiest public transportation systems in the country.

It’s worth buying a reusable SmarTrip card, which you’ll also need if you’re planning to use certain station parking lots (daily parking rates and availability vary by station). SmarTrip cards cost $10 and come with $8 worth of fare; they can be bought online at wmata.com, at all Metro stations, and at a few grocery stores and pharmacies around town. SmarTrip users get a $1 discount on all Metrorail rides and cheaper transfers to bus lines. Rides start at $1.75 and max out at $5.90 with a SmarTrip card.

If you’re coming up on that deadline, you can dock the bike and immediately take out another (or the same one), and the clock resets. Usage fees are posted on each dock, but for 30 minutes to an hour you’ll pay $2, and for the next half hour you’ll pay an additional $4.
