A bike design contest spanning Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Somerville is close to adding a unique new design to Hubway’s fleet of more than 1,300 bikes.
Now, Hubway has narrowed down its five top picks, and the company is asking the public to weigh in on the winning design.
Designers were asked to submit their visual design ideas without altering the hardware and functionality of the bike. The five finalist designs include tributes to the Charles River and Boston’s patriotic history as well as an “Everyday Waterbike” honoring the city’s many waterfront attractions.
The winning design will be turned into a limited edition, one-of-a-kind, “unicorn” Hubway bike that will hit the streets this fall. Voting will run through Sept. 9. and can be done online at www.thehubway.com.
Those who vote are in the running to win a free annual Hubway membership, which typically costs $85, while the winning designer will get their bike design entered into the fleet with their @twitter handle included as well as the opportunity to be the first to ride it.

And then there were five.
In mid-July, Hubway turned to riders for a special project, asking those who frequent the system to help them design a new “unicorn” bike—that’s a rare, one-of-a-kind bicycle like the one with former Mayor Tom Menino’s name on it—to slip into their fleet of 1,300 rides.
The theme of the competition, called the “Hubway Everyday Bike Design Contest,” was simple, yet locally inspired, with just one major guideline: contestants had to include the hashtag #HubwayEveryday in their design concept.
After receiving 20 entries for the competition, a panel of experts from the bike-sharing company’s various communities filtered the finalists down to just five top choices, leaving it up to the public to select the grand-prize winner.
In an email sent out Monday afternoon, Hubway representatives shared the five final designs that made it to through the end of the competition. They include a bike with an MBTA map and logo etched on the side; a bike with a layout of the Charles River and Emerald Necklace, a popular biking spot; a bike bursting with bright blue hues, featuring a spinning water wheel; a basic green bike with key points where Hubway bikes are located, and one with an argyle pattern made of patriotic symbols and red, white, and blue.
To pick which bike should become part of Hubway’s lineup, users can vote online through Tuesday, September 9, just before midnight. But choose wisely, because you can only vote once.
Not only will the winner have their design featured on one of the bikes traveling between the four cities and towns that have Hubway docking stations, they will also have the honor of their name —or Twitter handle—appearing on the bike, putting them in the ranks with Menino.
