We help plan and design streets for bicycling, manage the City's public bike share program, and add bike parking. We also host fun rides and events and teach Bostonians of all ages how to ride safely and responsibly in the City.
We help all Bostonians experience the joys of biking and support the growing community of cycling in Boston.
Better Bike Lane Projects
We've implemented a large number of bike lanes in Boston, now we're working to make them better.
Public Bike Share
The Boston Bikes Pass is a discounted annual Bluebikes membership for Boston residents. Boston residents who have not had an annual Bluebikes membership in the last three years are eligible for the $60/year membership. Boston residents who qualify for MassHealth, SNAP, or meet income guidelines can get an even further reduced rate at $5/year.
We also offer discounted passes for residents of other municipalities who receive public assistance or otherwise have qualifying incomes. Passes are only $50 for a full year or $5 for 30 days.
In September 2022, Mayor Wu announced a 100-station expansion of the bike share system in Boston.
These new stations will fill gaps in high-demand areas, making our system more reliable for riders. We'll also add stations in neighborhoods to improve access to the system overall.
Today, more than 90% of Bostonians live within a 10-minute walk of a bike share station. We aim for a 3- to 5-minute walk in our denser residential neighborhoods. We also want to be sure all major transit stations and stops are served by bike share stations.
We will share more about our expansion plans in 2023.
We want everyone to have a safe and convenient place to park their bike—at their residence, place of employment, school, or other everyday destination.
