Bluebikes is Metro Boston’s public bike share program, with more than 1,800 bikes at over 200 stations across Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Somerville. Bluebikes is owned by the municipalities of Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Somerville, and operated by Motivate.
Boston’s original bike share program, Hubway, launched in 2011 and quickly became an essential part of our transportation network as a fun, efficient and affordable way to get around. In 2018, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts became the title sponsor for the system and the name was changed to Bluebikes.
Bluebikes, like other bike share systems, consists of a fleet of specially designed, sturdy and durable bikes that are locked into a network of docking stations throughout the city. The bikes can be unlocked from one station and returned to any other station in the system, making them ideal for one-way trips. People use bike share to commute to work or school, run errands, get to appointments or social engagements, and more.
