Boston Bikes!

Global Immersions - Tuesday, August 09, 2011

When the weather is nice in Boston, there is no better way to explore the city than by bike. With the recent introduction of the Hubway bike sharing program, getting around Boston has never been easier!

Joining Hubway is simple and affordable, allowing users to purchase a 24-hour, 3-day, or Annual membership for $5, $12, or $85, respectively. Riders can join at any bike station kiosk, and each trip under thirty minutes is free after initial payment (usage fees rise incrementally: under 1 hour is $2, under 2 hours is $14, etc.), designed to empower users to make relatively quick, short distance rides around town.

As Hubway continues to expand, the city of Boston likewise aims to become a world-class bicycling city. As Senator John Kerry notes, “Biking is becoming a bigger part of urban transportation every day, and Boston has led the way incorporating bikes into the city. Now with this new bike share program, we’re on track to remain one of the most bike-friendly cities in the nation.”

For visitors who are new to the Boston area, renting a bike can be a great way to explore Boston at a low cost. With over 600 bikes at 60 locations, Hubway can be found nearby many of the universities and language centers throughout the city. Global Immersions encourages international visitors in the Boston area to try biking as a way to exercise, have fun, and learn more about our city!
