This is a great opportunity for those who may be interested in biking but aren’t able to invest in the needed equipment. As we all know, biking is a great transportation option for people looking to save money (up to $7,600 per year!). This subsidy, reducing the fee to $5 per year and providing a free helmet, gives lower-income households the chance to experience bikesharing, and may even convince a few folks to start riding more regularly on bikes of their own!
This is just another example of the City of Boston trying to make Hubway as accessible as possible. MassBike has been working with the city to provide free Bike Safety Workshops geared toward Hubway users, so that people can get where they’re going feeling comfortable and safe. We are looking forward to continued efforts to make this convenient bike system available to as many people as possible.
