how bluebikes works
Become a member online, or buy a pass from any Bluebikes station kiosk or through the mobile app.

Find an available bike nearby, and get a ride code or use your member key to unlock it.

Take as many short rides as you want while your pass or membership is active.

Return your bike to any station, and wait for the green light on the dock to make sure it’s locked.

Why join Bluebikes?

Save Time
Bluebikes is often faster than other ways of getting around. It’s quick to grab a bike and convenient to drop it off at any station when you’re done.

Get Exercise

Getting places by pedal power is great exercise. Even biking short distances can lead to positive health benefits, as well as reduced stress.
