    Hubway Bike Share Program Expanding

    Hubway, a popular bike sharing program in Boston, is growing.

    (Published Friday, July 14, 2017)

    Low-income families and individuals in the Metro-Boston area can now access Hubway, the area’s bike share system, at a reduced cost, according to Hubway officials.

    The "SNAP Card to Ride" program will provide both $5 monthly memberships and $50 annual memberships to anyone over the age of 16 with a household EBT card.

    The program will allow members to have unlimited 60-minute sessions, rather than the usual 30-minute sessions, and won’t have additional usage fees.

    Those who do not receive SNAP benefits, but are in other public assistance programs will be able to access the program soon, Hubway says.

Officers removed a 10-month-old child from the vehicle but left the 4-year-old girl, who spent the night in the tow lot where temperatures dropped to 19 degrees.

    Once a person is registered they can access any of the 194 stations across Boston, Cambridge, Somerville and Brookline.

    Boston officials plan to expand the program to allow guests of shelters or transitional homes access to the discount.
