This was the first AND LAST time I’ll be using this crap.
I rode a bike from a location near my house to a location deep downtown. I got to the destination, locked the bike in place, everything was fine. .....Suddenly about 2 hours later,...More
Regular blue bikes rider. Great idea to improve access, fitness, decrease traffic. However the actual service sucks.
Bikes are decent but a large portion of bikes and docks are broken. These are often not reflected in the app or website. So you end up walking...More
We rent ride share bikes whenever we travel, its a great way to see the sites and give your feet a break. Download the Blue Bikes app on your phone (it takes AmEx or any other card on the app). The daily rental is around...More
Three of us rented bikes for a short ride along the Charles River. The bikes were comfortable and easy to adjust to our heights.
One of the two bikes was not released with the code given. A phone call to customer service was all it...More
Rented bikes in Boston & loved the convenience & price! $8 for 24 hours. You can ride up to 30 minutes then dock bikes at any hubway station. Then just insert same credit card to obtain a new code to unlock new bikes. We rode...More
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
I ordered a helmet three weeks ago and it still has not arrived. I emailed them and a representative replied saying that there was a delay in the system. I asked for a refund since it was two weeks then and it was going to...More
The bikes were great. Hubway is not like other big town bike rentals. They rent shuttle bikes. For a quick trip. I kept the bike all day and it ends up costing me a lot more than $8.
Just read the instructions and know what...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
Biking was a fantastic way to see the city. We went all along the river, through Harvard, Fenway Park and did part of the Freedom Trail. BUT if you don't re-dock your bike every half hour it ends up costing a fortune. PLUS they take...More
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through 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 pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
