The city and Mayor Wu are launching the Boston Bikes Pass — a discounted annual Bluebikes membership for Boston residents. This means there will be a discounted annual pass for all Boston residents.

The short-term pilot program, now through June 2024, will explore options to make traveling by bike more affordable + support the growing demand for Bluebikes.

Boston residents who have not had an annual Bluebikes membership in the last three years are eligible for a $60 annual membership. Read: more than half off the usual $129 per year. Residents who qualify for MassHealth, SNAP, or meet income guidelines can get an even more reduced rate.

The city is working to expand the bike share system aiming to add 100 new stations. Currently, ~ 90% of households are within a 10 minute walk of a bike share station. Apply for a Boston Bikes Pass + find your nearest Bluebikes station and take a ride.
