Bluebikes is metro-Boston’s public bike share system. With over 2,500 bikes available 24/7 at more than 260 stations throughout Boston, Brookline, Everett, Cambridge, and Somerville, Bluebikes is one of the most popular bike shares in the country.

With the app, find your closest station and purchase a pass. Then unlock one of Bluebikes' specially designed, safe, sturdy, easy to ride bikes, and get riding right away. When you’re done riding, simply return the bike to an available dock at any station in the network. The app will show you all station locations, with real-time dock and dock availability, and you can save your favorites for later reference. Tap a station pin or location and the app will show you the best route to get there.

Ideal for one-way trips, commutes to work or school, running errands, meeting friends for dinner, going to a game, or just cruising around metro-Boston to see the sights.

And of course, get your exercise credit when you pedal with a Health app integration.

Happy riding!

Good. One suggestion.

Does almost all that it should. Toggle between Bike/Dock view is a nice touch. I really like the rewards program even though I haven’t figured out what the points are good for.

I would prefer that the dock full gauge be an actual gauge so that if you look closely you can tell about how many bikes or open docks. Sure, you can see the #s if you click a station, but most smart phones are very high res and those of us with good eyes could avoid that step most of the time.

Be like Nike...Just Do It

These bikes were one of the best things I experienced in Boston/best purchase made. They were so easy to figure out, and they were a great deal. I would highly recommend getting the monthly pass if you are here for two days. It allows you to rent as many bikes as possible. The app is fantastic, it tells you how many docking stations are open or how many bikes there are at each station. These bikes were a total feet saver and allowed us to see SO much of Boston in an efficient yet fun way. The city is SUPER bike friendly. I HIGHLY recommend using the bikes. Just make sure you read the helmet law if you are under 16. Happy riding!! 🚲

Terrible customer service

I picked up a broken bike and called Bluebikes to help me with my issue. They told me to store the bike in my house and they will come pick it up. I have called them repeatedly and they have not sent anyone to pick up the bike for THREE DAYS. They are using my house as a storage facility for their broken equipment, and if I choose not to keep the bike in my house, they will charge me $1200. This is no way to abuse customers when this is not my fault at all. For example, if I were traveling and leaving town soon, I would have no choice but pay them $1200 since I would not be able to store the bike. Furthermore, when I called, I asked them to end my ride on the app so I could get other bikes to go places, and they refused to help. Overall, such a terrible experience, really too bad they’re the only bike sharing platform in Boston.
