5 Million Rides | The Hubway

Let's Hit 5 Million Rides!

It’s been a big year! We celebrated Hubway’s 5th birthday in August and added more than 25 stations. And now, with your help, we’re about to hit a whopping 5 million rides.

The impact of bike sharing on everyday life in metro-Boston is tremendous, and the benefits extend far beyond the individual bikers. We’ve boosted activity levels and tourism. We’ve reduced gasoline consumption and our carbon footprint. And we’ve improved congestion and travel safety.

The Impact of 5 Million Rides

The more we bike, the more we achieve. Invite your friends to join Hubway and enjoy the benefits of cycling. Ask your company to join the Corporate program to improve morale and reduce sick days. Together, let’s get to 10 million rides and continue to watch metro-Boston flourish!
