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.

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!! 🚲
No available docks at destination
Be warned: you might see open docks on the app map when you first take a bike out, but they fill up quickly!
The app map shows many open docks when leaving work in Back Bay, then when I arrive home in a Southie, there are ZERO along my way(3 stations, totally full!). I live closest to the library station and often have to dock my bike at FARRAGUT.
I wish there was a way to have an option to reserve a dock at your destination upon removing a bike - and the app map would show users which docks are reserved. I’ve had a membership for years but the popularity of these is really demanding a change in the system, no? Customer service disagrees when I contacted them, so I’ll be buying my own bike when my membership expires.
