					Bicycle Rental Agreement, Liability Waiver, and Release
Capital Bikeshare is a self-serve bicycle rental system (“Service”), established by Arlington
County, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, and managed by Alta Bicycle Share, Inc.
(“Alta,” “Our,” or “We”). In consideration of your use of any Service, Alta requires that you
("User", “You”, or “Your”) agree to all terms and conditions in this Bicycle Rental Agreement,
Liability Waiver, and Release (“Agreement”), which are intended to promote the safe use of
Capital Bikeshare bicycles, and which apply to all Subscribers, Weekly and Daily Riders, as
defined below.

Section 1 Modifications to Agreement. Alta reserves the right to unilaterally amend, modify,
or change this Agreement, at any time and from time to time in its sole discretion, without notice
and without User’s consent. By continuing to use any Service after any amendment,
modification, or change, User has agreed to be bound by all such amendments, modifications,
and changes. User must carefully review this Agreement on a regular basis to maintain
awareness of all amendments, modifications, and changes. Whenever a change is made to this
Agreement, Alta will post a notification on www.capitalbikeshare.com.

Section 2 Term of Agreement. The term of this Agreement begins when You first use any
Service, and the term ends 10 years after Your last use of any Service; provided, however, that
Your personal financial responsibility under Section 15 of this Agreement, titled Credit Card
Matters, expires one year after the later of (i) Your last use of any Service, or (ii) the expiration
of Your Subscription. At any time and from time to time, and without User's consent, Alta may
unilaterally terminate Your right to use any Service, in Alta’s sole discretion and without any
notice or cause. This Agreement remains in full force and effect after any termination of Your
right to use any Service.

Section 3 Service System. The Service is comprised of Capital Bikeshare bicycle stations
(“Stations”), which include an automated pay station (“Pay Station”), and separate stands that
allow the docking of Capital Bikeshare bicycles (“Bike Docks”). The Stations are for the
purposes of the renting, docking, and locking of Capital Bikeshare bicycles, as well as the
identification of User. Under the Service, Capital Bikeshare bicycles can be rented and returned
to any Station.

Section 4 Subscription to Service. User may purchase a long-term subscription for the Service
("Subscription"), which can be for a period of either one year or 30 days (“Subscription”). To
purchase a Subscription, User must complete a registration form and create an account
("Account") at www.capitalbikeshare.com (“Website”), to become a subscriber (“Subscriber”).
When a User subscribes to the Service, Alta will charge the Subscriber’s credit card the amount
for the Subscription, as described in Section 5. Once Subscriber’s credit card payment clears,
Alta will mail a system key to the mailing address listed by Subscriber. Subscriber must activate
the system key on the Website, under the “Member Login” heading, before using the Service for
the first time. A Subscription becomes valid and active once the system key is activated on the
Website. The Subscription allows Subscriber to use the Service without having to pay the $5
charge applicable to Weekly or Daily Riders (defined below); provided; however, that
Subscriber must still pay the hourly rates as set forth in Section 7 for all trips in excess of 30
minutes. In this Agreement, “User” also includes anyone who is a “Subscriber.” Within one

Page 1 - - Bicycle Rental Agreement, Liability Waiver, and Release
year after a prior Subscription expires, Subscriber may renew the Subscription on the Website,
under the “Member Login” heading. If the Subscription is not renewed within this period of
time, then Subscriber might need to (i) take certain actions to reactivate Subscriber's old
Account, or (ii) create an entirely new Account for a new Subscription. The Subscription, and
the personal identification number and system key related thereto, are non-transferable and may
be terminated if Subscriber breaches this Agreement, as decided by Alta in its sole discretion. If
a Subscription is terminated for any reason, then no refund is provided.

Section 5 Subscriber Rates and Benefits. A one-year Subscription may be purchased for $75,
and a 30-day Subscription may be purchased for $25 (taxes are included). User may purchase a
Subscription only by using a Visa or MasterCard credit card. On the 10th day of each month, the
total amount of chargeable trips (i.e., those trips in excess of 30 minutes) will be charged to
Subscriber’s credit card. At the end of each month, Subscriber may access a statement of
chargeable trips in PDF® format on the Website. If Subscriber has any claim or dispute
regarding a chargeable trip, then Subscriber must, within 10 business days from the end of the
prior month with the disputed claim, provide to Alta the corresponding trip number to identify
the place and time the Capital Bikeshare bicycle was rented and returned. The receipt, if any,
indicating the date and time the Capital Bikeshare bicycle was returned would be additional
proof that the Capital Bikeshare bicycle had been properly returned. Subscriber is encouraged to
maintain all trip receipts.

Section 6 Weekly and Daily Rider Rates and Benefits. If User does not elect to purchase a
Subscription and merely uses the Service for a 5-day (“Weekly Rider”) or 24-hour period
(“Daily Rider”), then User must pay a $15 flat fee for a 5-day period or a $5 flat fee for a 24-
hour period, plus all additional hourly charges pursuant to the rates set forth in Section 7. When
a Weekly or Daily Rider signs up to the Service at the Station, Alta will place a security deposit
hold on Weekly or Daily Rider’s credit card of $101; and, that amount could remain on Weekly
or Daily Rider’s credit card for an amount of time to be determined by the User's bank's policies
regarding holds. This hold will be placed on Weekly or Daily Rider’s credit card for each bike
rented. In this Agreement, “User” also includes anyone who is a “Weekly Rider” or“Daily
Rider.”

Section 7 Hourly Rates. In addition to the Subscription,Weekly and Daily Rider rates outlined
in Sections 4 to 6, all Users are subject to hourly rates. The hourly rates are set forth in the chart
below. So long as User returns the Capital Bikeshare bicycle to a Bike Dock within 30 minutes,
no hourly charge applies. User may remove another Capital Bikeshare bicycle from a Bike Dock
after returning the previous Capital Bikeshare bicycle after a 15 second wait.

Section 8 Availability of Service. Alta makes every effort to provide the Service for 365 days
per year, but does not guarantee that the Service will be available at all times, as force majeure
events or other circumstances might prevent Alta from providing the Service. Access to the
Service also is conditioned on the availability of Capital Bikeshare bicycles at each Station. Alta
does not represent or warrant the availability of any Service or the availability of any Capital
Bikeshare bicycle at any Station. User may use the Website to consult the inventory of Capital
Bikeshare bicycles available at a Station.

Section 9 Directions for Using Service.

        Section 9.1 Removing Bicycle.

                 Section 9.1(a) Removing Bicycle by Subscriber. Subscriber must insert their
                 system key into the reader slot on the Bike Dock keyboard, to remove the Capital
                 Bikeshare bicycle from the Bike Dock. After the system key has been inserted
                 into the reader slot, Subscriber has 15 seconds to remove the Capital Bikeshare
                 bicycle from the Bike Dock. The signal light remains yellow during the
                 validation of Subscriber’s system key, and the signal light turns green when the
                 Capital Bikeshare bicycle can be removed. Two sounds signals are also emitted.
                 If the Capital Bikeshare bicycle is not removed within 15 seconds, the Bike Dock
                 locks and Subscriber must repeat the process described above.

                 Section 9.1(b) Removing Bicycle by Weekly or Daily Rider. A Weekly or
                 Daily Rider must insert a credit card into the Pay Station and obtain a 5-digit code
                 after completing the payment process. Weekly or Daily Rider must then type the
                 5-digit code into the Bike Dock keyboard, to remove the Capital Bikeshare
                 bicycle from the Bike Dock. After the 5-digit code has been entered, Weekly or
                 Daily Rider has 15 seconds to remove the Capital Bikeshare bicycle from the
                 Bike Dock. The signal light remains yellow during the validation of the Weekly
                 or Daily Rider’s 5-digit code, and the signal light turns green when the Capital
                 Bikeshare bicycle can be removed. Two sounds signals are also emitted. If the
                 Capital Bikeshare bicycle is not removed within 15 seconds, the Bike Dock locks
                 and Daily Rider must repeat the process described above. Each time Weekly or
                 Daily Rider would like to remove a new Capital Bikeshare bicycle from a Bike
                 Dock, Weekly or Daily Rider must insert a credit card into the Pay Station and
                 obtain a new 5-digit code, to remove the next Capital Bikeshare bicycle. A
                 Weekly or Daily Rider may remove up to two Capital Bikeshare bicycles on each


Page 3 - - Bicycle Rental Agreement, Liability Waiver, and Release
                 credit card account, and Weekly or Daily Rider will be charged for the use of two
                 Capital Bikeshare bicycles.

        Section 9.2 Returning Bicycle. To return the Capital Bikeshare bicycle, User must
secure it into an available Bike Dock. A sound signal is emitted, and the signal light turns
yellow, then green, confirming that the Capital Bikeshare bicycle has been properly secured to
the Bike Dock. If the Capital Bikeshare bicycle is not properly secured in the Bike Dock, then
the signal light turns red, and a longer signal sound is emitted. If the signal light turns red, User
must repeat the operation until the signal light turns green, and the Capital Bikeshare bicycle is
properly secured in the Bike Dock. If the signal light does not turn green, User must return the
Capital Bikeshare bicycle to another available Bike Dock. If there is no available Bike Dock at
the Station, then Users must push the “Time Credit” icon on the Pay Station screen under the
“More Options” menu. Subscriber must input the 7-digit code on the back of the system key and
Weekly or Daily Riders must swipe their credit card at the Pay Station, to obtain an additional
15-minute credit in which to return the Capital Bikeshare bicycle to another Station. No fee is
charged to User for the additional 15-minute credit. User may immediately remove another
Capital Bikeshare bicycle from a Bike Dock. Any Capital Bikeshare bicycle that is not properly
secured remains the sole responsibility of User, and the hourly rates set forth in Section 4 will be
charged until the Capital Bikeshare bicycle is properly secured.

        Section 9.3 Obtaining Receipt. User may print a receipt to confirm that the Capital
Bikeshare bicycle has been properly returned to the Bike Dock. The date and time of return are
indicated on the receipt, and the receipt may be used to dispute a chargeable trip. To obtain a
receipt, Users must push the “Rental Receipt” icon on the Pay Station screen under the “More
Options” menu. Subscriber must input the 7-digit code on the back of the system key and
Weekly or Daily Riders must swipe their credit card at the Pay Station

        Section 9.4 Permitted Period of Continuous Use; Lost or Stolen Bicycle. Use of the
Service is limited to a period of 24 consecutive hours (“Permitted Period of Continuous Use”).
If User maintains possession of the Capital Bikeshare bicycle beyond the Permitted Period of
Continuous Use, then the Capital Bikeshare bicycle is deemed lost or stolen, User’s credit card
will be charged a fee of $1,000, and a police report may be filed with local authorities. Alta will
attempt to contact the User via telephone and email prior to charging the credit card, using the
contact information provided by the User upon subscribing, in an attempt to locate the Capital
Bikeshare bicycle. The data generated by the Service’s computer is conclusive evidence of the
period of use of a Capital Bikeshare bicycle by User. For any disappearance of a Capital
Bikeshare bicycle where User will be held responsible, User must report the disappearance to
Alta within 24 hours following the disappearance and must report the disappearance to the local
police department within 48 hours. If User promptly files a police report and forwards the police
report to Alta, then Alta may, in its sole discretion, choose to charge the User only a $30 service
fee. Any use that exceeds the Permitted Period of Continuous Use is deemed a disappearance of
the Capital Bikeshare bicycle, until the Capital Bikeshare bicycle is found or returned to a Bike
Dock.

      Section 9.5 Lost or Damaged System Key. If Subscriber’s system key has been lost or
damaged, a replacement may be purchased by calling 877-430-BIKE (2453) or by emailing
customerservice@capitalbikeshare.com and reporting that the system key has been lost or


Page 4 - - Bicycle Rental Agreement, Liability Waiver, and Release
damaged. A replacement charge of $10 for the lost or damaged service key will be charged, and
a replacement system key will be mailed to Subscriber’s mailing address of record.

Section 10 General Assumption of Risk by User. User agrees that riding a Capital Bikeshare
bicycle involves many obvious and not-so-obvious risks, dangers, and hazards, which may result
in injury or death to User or others, as well as damage to property, and that such risks, dangers,
and hazards cannot always be predicted or avoided. User agrees that such risks, dangers, and
hazards are User's sole responsibility. User agrees that if User’s use of any Service causes injury
or damage to another person or property, then User may be liable for all resulting injuries,
damages, and related costs. By choosing to ride a Capital Bikeshare bicycle, User assumes all
responsibility for all related risks, dangers, and hazards, and User agrees that Alta is not
responsible for any injury, damage, or cost caused by User with respect to any person or
property, including the Capital Bikeshare bicycle itself. User is solely and fully responsible for
the safe operation of the Capital Bikeshare bicycle at all times. User may need to take additional
safety measures or precautions not specifically addressed in this Agreement.

Section 11 Prohibited Acts.

    a. User must not ride a Capital Bikeshare bicycle while carrying any briefcase, backpack,
       bag, or other item else, if it impedes User’s ability to operate a Capital Bikeshare bicycle
       safely.
    b. User must not use any cellular telephone, text messaging device, portable music player,
       or other device that may distract User from safely operating a Capital Bikeshare bicycle;
       provided, however, that User may use a cellular telephone only while employing an
       activated hands-free device that does not hinder User's ability to safely ride a Capital
       Bikeshare bicycle.
    c. User must not operate a Capital Bikeshare bicycle while under the influence of any
       alcohol, drugs, or other substance that may impair User’s ability to safely operate a
       Capital Bikeshare bicycle.
    d. User must not carry a second person on a Capital Bikeshare bicycle.
    e. User must not dock or lock any bicycle in any Station other than Capital Bikeshare
       bicycles.
    f. User must not use any locking mechanism, other than the locking mechanism provided
       by Alta at the Bike Dock, to lock a Capital Bikeshare bicycle to a Bike Dock.
    g. User must not violate any applicable federal, state, or local law, including those for
       bicycle riders.
    h. User must not dismantle or modify a Capital Bikeshare bicycle in any way. This rule
       does not apply to the use of the seat height adjustment feature on Capital Bikeshare
       bicycles.
    i. User must not exceed the maximum weight limit for the Capital Bikeshare bicycle (260
       pounds) or the cargo carrier (17 pounds).
    j. User must not operate a Capital Bikeshare bicycle in extreme weather conditions,
       including snow, hail, and electrical storms, which make it more dangerous to operate a
       Capital Bikeshare bicycle. User is advised to adjust User's riding behavior and braking
       distance to suit the weather conditions.
    k. User must not allow others to use a Capital Bikeshare bicycle that User has removed
       from a Bike Dock. User understands that when User removes from a Capital Bikeshare
       bicycle from a Bike Dock, it is to be used only by User. User must not transfer User’s

Page 5 - - Bicycle Rental Agreement, Liability Waiver, and Release
        system key, 7 digit code on the system key, 5- digit code at the Pay Station or any other
        Account information to any other person.

Section 12 Additional User Obligations.

    a. User agrees that User is a competent bicycle operator, is sufficiently fit to safely operate a
       Capital Bikeshare bicycle, and has received medical clearances for such physical activity.
       Like any physical activity, riding a Capital Bikeshare bicycle may cause minor or major
       injuries or discomfort and may worsen or complicate underlying medical conditions or
       diseases. By choosing to ride a Capital Bikeshare bicycle, User assumes all
       responsibility for all such injuries or other medical conditions.
    b. User agrees that bicycles are machines that may malfunction, even if the bicycle is
       properly maintained, and that such malfunction may cause injury. User agrees that
       before using a Capital Bikeshare bicycle, User must conduct a safety inspection of the
       Capital Bikeshare bicycle, which includes inspecting the following: (i) proper tire
       pressure; (ii) trueness of the wheels; (iii) safe operation of all brakes and lights; (iv)
       proper attachment of the seat, pedals, and basket; (v) good condition of the frame; and
       (vi) any sign of damage, unusual or excessive wear, or other mechanical problem or
       maintenance need. User agrees not to ride the Capital Bikeshare bicycle if User notices
       any mechanical or other problem or safety issue, and User agrees to promptly notify Alta
       of all problems and issues and to use a different Capital Bikeshare bicycle. User agrees
       to press the “Faulty Bike” button within 1 minute of docking a Capital Bikeshare bicycle
       that User notices has any mechanical or other problem or safety issue.
    c. User agrees that Alta does not provide or maintain places where to ride Capital Bikeshare
       bicycles, and that Alta does not guarantee that there will always be a safe place to ride a
       Capital Bikeshare bicycle. Roads, bicycle lanes, and bicycle routes may become
       dangerous due to weather, traffic, or other hazards. User must not use a Capital
       Bikeshare bicycle for racing, riding off road, or any other use, besides safe operation on
       public or private roads or property and designated bicycle routes.
    d. User agrees that Alta is not a common carrier. Alternative means of public and private
       transportation are available to the general public and to User individually, including
       public buses and light rail service, taxis, and pedestrian paths. Alta provides Capital
       Bikeshare bicycles only as a convenience, and such rental availability is intended by Alta
       to be used only by those persons who are able and qualified to operate a Capital
       Bikeshare bicycle on their own and who have agreed to all terms and conditions of this
       Agreement.
    e. User must return the Capital Bikeshare bicycle to a Station and must insert the Capital
       Bikeshare bicycle into a Bike Dock, within 24 hours from the time the Capital Bikeshare
       bicycle was originally removed from a Bike Dock. User agrees that if the Capital
       Bikeshare bicycle is not returned to a Station and inserted into a Bike Dock within 24
       hours, then the Capital Bikeshare bicycle is deemed missing or stolen, and User does
       hereby authorize Alta to charge User’s credit card a $1,000 fee.
    f. User agrees that Alta may require User to return a Capital Bikeshare bicycle at any time.
    g. User agrees that access to the Service is denied to any person less than 16 years of age,
       whether or not accompanied by a parent or guardian. Minors who are at least 16 years of
       age may use the Service, but only if the Service is subscribed for by or under the
       responsibility of the minor’s parent or guardian; and, the parent or guardian is fully liable
       for all injuries, damages, and costs caused by the minor’s use of the Service.

Page 6 - - Bicycle Rental Agreement, Liability Waiver, and Release
    h. User must report all accidents and injuries involving a Capital Bikeshare bicycle to the
       local authorities and to Capital Bikeshare's Customer Service at 1-877-430-BIKE (2453)
       as soon as possible, but in no event later than 24 hours after the occurrence of the
       accident or injury.

Section 13 Additional Fees. If the Capital Bikeshare bicycle is not returned to a Bike Dock
within the Permitted Period of Continuous Use, then User will be charged a fee of $1,000. If the
Capital Bikeshare bicycle is returned to a Bike Dock damaged or in a state of disrepair, then User
will be charged a fee that is equal to the cost of repair. Such fees may be charged as soon as 24
hours after the Capital Bikeshare bicycle is not returned or is returned in a damaged state. Alta
will attempt to contact the User via telephone and email before charging the User's credit card,
by using the contact information provided by the User when subscribing to the Service.

Section 14 Helmets. Wearing a Snell, CPSC, ANSI, or ASTM approved helmet, properly
sized, fitted, and fastened, while cycling may protect against an injury, or may lessen the severity
of an injury, caused by an impact to the head; however, bicycle helmets are not 100% effective,
do not protect against all head injuries, and do not protect against other injuries. Although some
state and local laws do not require bicycle riders to wear helmets, Alta recommends that all
riders wear a Snell, CPSC, ANSI, or ASTM approved helmet that has been properly sized, fitted,
and fastened, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Alta does not represent or warrant
the quality or safety characteristics of any helmet, and User agrees that Alta must not be held
liable for any injury suffered by User while using the Service, whether or not User is wearing a
helmet at the time of injury.

Section 15 Credit Card Matters. You must input a valid credit card number and expiration
date before You will be allowed to use the Service, and You do hereby represent and warrant that
You are authorized to use the credit card (Alta accepts only Visa or MasterCard). You do hereby
authorize Alta to charge Your credit card for all expenses incurred on Your Account, including
all additional fees and repair charges. If you dispute any charge on Your Account, then you must
contact Alta within 10 days of Your receipt of Your statement containing the disputed charge.
Subscribers have an on-going duty to update all changes relating to their credit card. A $101
hold will be placed on a Weekly or Daily Rider’s credit card when a Weekly or Daily Rider signs
up for the service at the Pay Station. If a Weekly or Daily Rider removes another Capital
Bikeshare bicycle from a Bike Dock while the previous hold is still in effect, then an additional
hold will not be placed on the User’s credit card. If the Capital Bikeshare bicycle is returned
within the 24-hour maximum period of allowed use, then the hold may be released within ten
days, depending on the User’s bank’s policies regarding holds. Alta uses www.authorize.net
(“Processor”) as Our transaction payment processor. The transmission of data to Processor and
the approval of a credit card should take less than 10 seconds; however, a credit card might not
allow for an overcharge/overdraft, which means that a User’s transaction request could be
denied. All denials of a transaction by a User’s bank, all holds, and all other similar issues are
the User’s sole responsibility and should be dealt with between the User and his or her bank.
Alta takes reasonable steps to ensure that all data transmitted by Alta is done safely and
privately; however, despite those steps, Alta cannot guarantee the complete security of all credit
card and other data transmitted by Alta or Processor. Please review the DISCLAIMERS and
LIMITED LIABILITY sections set forth below, which are applicable to User’s use of the
Service, including the transmission of credit card and other data.

Section 16 Termination. User may terminate User's use of the Service at any time, and
Subscriber may cancel Subscriber's Subscription at any time; provided, however, that (i) no
refund will be provided by Alta, (ii) the term of this Agreement continues in accordance with
Section 2 of this Agreement, (iii) the hold may remain on User’s credit card account for up to 10
days, even if User terminates User's use of the Service, and (iv) User may still be charged any
applicable additional fees in accordance with Section 13 of this Agreement.

construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the District of Columbia, excluding
principles of conflicts of laws. For every dispute regarding this Agreement: (i) the prevailing

provided by any party. If, for any reason, the dispute is not resolved through mediation within
the 4-month period, then the parties may continue seeking to resolve the dispute by use of any
process, including litigation by trial.

Section 18 Waiver. No waiver of any breach of any provision of this Agreement is a waiver of
any other breach or of any other provision of this Agreement. The terms of this Agreement may
be waived or amended only in writing and only by the party that is entitled to the benefits of the
term being waived or amended.

Section 19 Cumulative Remedies. All rights and remedies granted under or referred to in this
Agreement are cumulative and nonexclusive, and resort to one does not preclude resort to
another or to any other right or remedy provided by law.

Section 20 Final Agreement. This Agreement contains the complete, final, and exclusive
integrated agreement between the parties with respect to its subject matter. This Agreement
supersedes all other prior agreements, written or oral, relating to such subject matter. At any
time and from time to time, and without User's consent, Alta may unilaterally amend, modify, or
change this Agreement, in its sole discretion and without any notice or cause. By continuing to
use any Service after any amendment, modification, or change, User has agreed to be bound by
all such amendments, modifications, and changes. User must carefully review this Agreement
on a regular basis to maintain awareness of all amendments, modifications, and changes.
