The Boston Cyclists Union is providing discounted Bluebikes passes to people with limited incomes throughout Greater Boston. This program reduces the cost of an annual pass from $100 to $5 to ensure people who want to get around by bike are able to do so.
To qualify, applicants must either receive one of the listed forms of public assistance (see application) and/or have an income below 4X the Federal Poverty level (check full poverty level guidelines here.)
This program is made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Wagner Foundation, which is working to build just and robust community where all people have equitable access to opportunity and the ability to live a life of purpose and dignity. The Wagner Foundation supports organizations that improve health equity, increase economic mobility, expand institutional fairness, and strive for cultural transformation. In addition to suporting this program, the organization is also a major donor to the Boston Cyclists Union's general fund.
Bluebikes is Metro Boston's public bike share program, with more than 3,000 bikes and 300 stations across Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, Everett, and Somerville. It’s a fun, affordable and convenient transportation option for quick trips around town.
