Overview
More
Hubway is metro-Boston's bike sharing system providing more than 1,300 bikes at 140 stations throughout the cities of Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville, and the Town of Brookline. Local residents can become Annual or Monthly members, and visitors can choose a 24-hour access pass ($6) or 72-hour pass ($12) or even the Monthly option ($20) for extended stays. Passes include an unlimited number of trips during your access period -- the first 30 minutes of every trip is included at no additional cost. String short trips together to avoid usage fees. With so many stations available throughout the area, Hubway is great for getting from point to point as you visit landmarks, shops, parks, restaurants, and cafes throughout the Boston area. For locals, it's great for getting to work, class, or back home, as an alternative to driving or taking the train or bus. Ride, return, and repeat, as many times as you want.

My boyfriend and I rented two bikes while in Boston. We chose the 24-hour membership, but apparently if you don't dock the bike every 30 minutes, you get charged additionally. What should have been a $16 rental, turned into $150. What's the purpose of writing...More

It's fun, affordable, and fast! As long as you stay under 30 minutes you are good to go. It's way cheaper than the T and the most sustainable way to get around. Highly recommend downloading an app like Spotcycle so you know where the stations...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with

one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the

during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
