New Balance Hubway
Hubway, Boston's public bike share system, is the newest way to get around Boston. Grab a bike near your home, office, hotel, or school and pedal your way to eat lunch, go shopping, take classes, or visit friends and family.
You can buy a membership or a day pass. Both get you access to unlimited short trips. Just use your membership key or enter your code and go! Bikes are continually maintained and they adjust to fit all sizes.
Visit the Hubway website to sign up and get more information.
Boston's Low-Income Program
Low-income Bostonians can use Hubway for $5 a year. Your membership will include a helmet, a bicycle benefits sticker, and unlimited 1-hour trips.
If you are a Boston resident who is 16 or older, you may qualify if:
- you have a low income, based on your family size (restrictions apply for college students)
- you receive certain types of public assistance
If you qualify for the program, your annual membership cost will be $5, including a free helmet. For members in the low-income program, the first 60 minutes* of every bicycle trip is free, but there are usage fees for any ride longer than 60-minutes.
*This is a 30-minute increase from the normal non-subsidized free-use period.

We will work with any local community organization that serves low-income Boston residents and wants to help spread the word about the subsidized Hubway membership program. This includes community centers, churches, parent organizations, social justice organizations, affordable housing coalitions, or any group that represents numerous eligible individuals. Employees of community organizations are only eligible for the subsidized membership program if they meet the income-eligibility guidelines.
If you have more questions about Hubway subsidized memberships, or if you would like to schedule a presentation about the program for a group, please call Kim Foltz at 617-635-1470 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Program flyers in multiple languages are available upon request. For printed copies or a pdf that you can print, please e-mail Kim Foltz at email@example.com.
