In consideration of your use of any of the Hubway Service, as defined below, Motivate International, Inc. ("Motivate") requires that you ("Member", "You", or "Your") agree to all terms and conditions in this Bicycle Rental Agreement ("Agreement"). The “Service” is composed of Hubway bicycle stations ("Stations"), which include an automated pay station ("Pay Station"), and separate stands that allow the docking of Hubway bicycles ("Bike Docks"), the Hubway bicycles, and all related equipment, personnel, and information.
Section 1 Annual and Monthly Membership Fees. When an Annual or Monthly Member subscribes to the Service, Motivate will charge the Member's credit or debit card the amount of the respective membership fee in effect on the date of subscription. In addition, all hourly fees set forth in Section 2 apply. The amount of the annual and monthly membership fee in effect can be found at the Service’s website at “www.thehubway.com” (“Website”).
Section 3 Hourly Fees. All Members are subject to hourly fees. The hourly fees are set forth in the chart below. So long as Member returns the Hubway bicycle to a Bike Dock within 30 minutes, no hourly fee applies. Member may remove another Hubway bicycle from a Bike Dock after returning the previous Hubway bicycle after a 3 minute wait.
On the 7th day of each month, the total amount of chargeable trips (i.e., those trips in excess of 30 minutes) will be charged to Member's credit or debit card. At any time, Member may access a statement of their trip history on the Website. If Member has any claim or dispute regarding a chargeable trip, then Member must, within 10 business days from the end of the prior month with the disputed claim, provide to Motivate trip information necessary to identify the disputed charge, such as date of trip and approximate start and end times. The receipt, if any, indicating the date and time the Hubway bicycle was returned would be additional proof that the Hubway bicycle had been properly returned. Member is encouraged to maintain all trip receipts.

Section 4 Lost or Damaged Bicycles; Key; Additional Fees. Use of the Service is limited to a period of 24 consecutive hours. If the Hubway bicycle is not returned to a Bike Dock within a period of 24 consecutive hours, then Member will be charged a fee of $1,000. The Hubway bicycle must be returned by Member in the same condition in which it was rented. If the Hubway bicycle is returned to a Bike Dock damaged or in a state of disrepair, then Member will be charged a fee that is equal to the cost of repair. Such fees may be charged as soon as 24 hours after the Hubway bicycle is not returned or is returned in a damaged state. Motivate will attempt to contact Member via telephone and email before charging the Member's credit or debit card, by using the contact information provided by Member when subscribing to the Service.

Such releases are intended to be general and complete releases of all Claims.

OUR TOTAL LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS, INCLUDING THOSE BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STATUTORY, OR OTHER GROUNDS, IS LIMITED TO THE SUM OF $100. Some jurisdictions do not allow for limited liability or exclusion of implied warranties; and, if any of those laws apply to You, then some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions, or limitations might not apply to You, and You might have additional rights.
Section 9 Assumption of Risk by Member. Member agrees that riding a Hubway bicycle involves many obvious and not-so-obvious risks, dangers, and hazards, which may result in injury or death to Member or others, as well as damage to property, and that such risks, dangers, and hazards cannot always be predicted or avoided. Member agrees that such risks, dangers, and hazards are Member's sole responsibility. Member agrees that if Member's use of any of the Service causes injury or damage to another person or property, then Member may be liable for all resulting injuries, damages, and related costs. By choosing to ride a Hubway bicycle, Member assumes all responsibility for all related risks, dangers, and hazards, and Member agrees that Motivate and the Municipalities are not responsible for any injury, damage, or cost caused by Member with respect to any person or property, including the Hubway bicycle itself. Member is solely and fully responsible for the safe operation of the Hubway bicycle at all times.
Section 10 Activation of Member Key. Once You are successfully registered to use the Service, Motivate will mail a system key to the mailing address listed by You. You must activate the system key on the Website, under the "Member Login" heading, before using the Service for the first time. A Membership becomes valid and active once the system key is activated.
Section 11 Removing Bicycle by Member. Members must insert their system key into the reader slot on the Bike Dock keyboard, to remove the Hubway bicycle from the Bike Dock. After the system key has been inserted into the reader slot, the Member has 15 seconds to remove the Hubway bicycle from the Bike Dock. The signal light remains yellow during the validation of the Member's system key, and the signal light turns green when the Hubway bicycle can be removed. Two sounds signals are also emitted. If the Hubway bicycle is not removed within 15 seconds, the Bike Dock locks and the Member must repeat the process described above.
Before each use of a Hubway bicycle, Member shall conduct a safety inspection of the Hubway bicycle, which includes inspecting the following: (i) proper tire pressure; (ii) trueness of the wheels; (iii) safe operation of all brakes and lights; (iv) proper attachment of the seat, pedals, and basket; (v) good condition of the frame; and (vi) any sign of damage, unusual or excessive wear, or other mechanical problem or maintenance need. Member agrees not to ride the Hubway bicycle if Member notices any mechanical or other problem or safety issue, to promptly notify Motivate of all problems and issues, and to use a different Hubway bicycle. Member agrees to press the "Faulty Bike" button within 1 minute of docking a Hubway bicycle that Member notices has any mechanical or other problem or safety issue.
Section 12 Returning Bicycle. To return the Hubway bicycle, Member must secure it into an available Bike Dock. A sound signal is emitted, and the signal light turns yellow, then green, confirming that the Hubway bicycle has been properly secured to the Bike Dock. If the Hubway bicycle is not properly secured in the Bike Dock, then the signal light turns red, and a longer signal sound is emitted. If the signal light turns red, Member must repeat the operation until the signal light turns green and the Hubway bicycle is properly secured in the Bike Dock. If the signal light does not turn green, Member must return the Hubway bicycle to another available Bike Dock. If there is no available Bike Dock at the Station, then Member must push the "Time Credit" icon on the Pay Station screen to obtain an additional 15-minute credit in which to return the Hubway bicycle to another Station. No fee is charged to Member for the additional 15-minute credit. Any Hubway bicycle that is not properly secured remains the sole responsibility of Member, and the hourly fees set forth in Section 2 will be charged until the Hubway bicycle is properly secured.
Section 13 Obtaining Receipt. Member may print a receipt to confirm that the Hubway bicycle has been properly returned to the Bike Dock. The date and time of return are indicated on the receipt, and the receipt may be used to dispute a chargeable trip. To obtain a receipt, Members must push the "Rental Receipt" icon on the Pay Station screen under the "More Options" menu.
Section 14 Lost or Stolen Bicycle. If Member maintains possession of the Hubway bicycle beyond a period of 24 consecutive hours, then the Hubway bicycle is deemed lost or stolen, Member's credit or debit card will be charged a fee of $1,000, and a police report may be filed with local authorities. The data generated by the Service's computer is conclusive evidence of the period of use of a Hubway bicycle by a Member. For any disappearance of a Hubway bicycle where a Member is held responsible, Member must report the disappearance to Motivate within 24 hours following the disappearance and must report the disappearance to the local police department within 48 hours. Any use that exceeds a period of 24 consecutive hours is deemed a disappearance of the Hubway bicycle, until the Hubway bicycle is found or returned to a Bike Dock.
Section 15 Helmets; Safety. All riders are required wear a Snell, CPSC, ANSI, or ASTM approved helmet that has been properly sized, fitted, and fastened, according to the manufacturer's instructions. Wearing a Snell, CPSC, ANSI, or ASTM approved helmet, properly sized, fitted, and fastened, while cycling may protect against an injury, or may lessen the severity of an injury, caused by an impact to the head; however, bicycle helmets are not 100% effective, do not protect against all head injuries, and do not protect against other injuries. None of Motivate and its Related Parties and/or the Municipalities represent or warrant the quality or safety characteristics of any helmet, and Member agrees that none of Motivate and its Related Parties and/or the Municipalities are liable for any injury suffered by Member while using the Service, whether or not Member is wearing a helmet at the time of injury. Member may need to take additional safety measures or precautions not specifically addressed in this Agreement. Member represents and warrants that Member has and shall wear a Snell, CPSC, ANSI, or ASTM approved helmet, properly sized, fitted, and fastened, at all times while using the Service.
Section 16 Prohibited Acts. Member must not ride a Hubway bicycle while carrying any briefcase, backpack, bag, or other item if it impedes Member's ability to operate a Hubway bicycle safely. In addition, Hubway riders must not:
- a. use any cellular telephone, text messaging device, portable music player, or other device that may distract Member from safely operating a Hubway bicycle.

- j. allow others to use a Hubway bicycle that Member has removed from a Bike Dock. Member understands that when Member removes from a Hubway bicycle from a Bike Dock, it is to be used only by Member.

By choosing to ride Hubway bicycle, Member assumes all responsibilities and risks for all such injuries or other medical conditions.
- 2. Member agrees that bicycles are machines that may malfunction, even if the bicycle is properly maintained, and that such malfunction may cause injury.

Member must not use a Hubway bicycle for racing, riding off road, or any other use, besides safe operation on public or private roads or property and designated bicycle routes.
- 4. Member agrees that Motivate and the Municipalities are not a common carrier. Alternative means of public and private transportation are available to the general public and to Member individually, including public buses and rail service, taxis, and pedestrian paths. Motivate and the Municipalities provide Hubway bicycles only as a convenience, and such rental availability is intended to be used only by those persons who are able and qualified to operate a Hubway bicycle on their own and who have agreed to all terms and conditions of this Agreement.
- 5. Member agrees that access to the Service is denied to any person less than 16 years of age, whether or not accompanied by a parent or guardian. Minors who are at least 16 years of age may use the Service, but only if the Service is subscribed for by and under the responsibility of the minor's parent or legal guardian. By authorizing use of the Service by a minor, the parent or legal guardian agrees s/he is fully responsible and liable for all injuries, damages, and costs and expenses arising from or related to the minor's use of the Service and guarantees, represents, and warrants: (i) the parent’s or legal guardian’s; and (ii) the minor’s acceptance of and agreement and compliance with all terms and conditions of this Agreement as a Member.
- 6. Member must report to the police and to Hubway Customer Service at 1-(855) - 9HUBWAY (948-2929) as soon as possible, but in no event later than 24 hours, after the occurrence of any of the following events: any crash, damage, loss, or personal injury while using a Hubway bicycle; any vandalism; any stolen or lost bicycle; and, any stolen or lost system key.
- 7. Member is responsible for all charges, damages, or injuries incurred either directly or indirectly resulting from use of Member’s key prior to deactivation of the key by Motivate upon expiration of membership or a report to the Hubway Customer Service at 1-(855)- 9HUBWAY (948-2929) that the key is lost or stolen.
Section 18 Limitations on Availability of Service. Motivate makes every effort to provide the Service from March through November, but does not guarantee that the Service will be available at all times, as force majeure events or other circumstances might prevent Motivate from providing the Service. Access to the Service also is conditioned on the availability of Hubway bicycles at each Station. Motivate does not represent or warrant the availability of any Service or the availability of any Hubway bicycle at any Station. Member may use the Website to consult the inventory of Hubway bicycles available at a Station. Member agrees that Motivate may require Member to return a Hubway bicycle at any time.
Section 19 Term and Termination. The term of this Agreement begins when You first use the Service, and the term ends 10 years after Your last use of the Service; provided, however, that Your personal financial responsibility under Section 4 of this Agreement, titled Credit/Debit Card Matters, expires one year after the later of (i) Your last use of the Service, or (ii) the expiration of Your membership. At any time and from time to time, and without Member's consent, Motivate may unilaterally terminate Your right to use the Service, in Motivate's sole discretion and without any notice or cause. Member may terminate Member's use of the Service at any time; provided, however, that (i) no refund will be provided by Motivate, (ii) the term of this Agreement continues in accordance with this Section 18 of the Agreement, (iii) Member may still be charged any applicable additional fees in accordance with Sections 2 and 3 of this Agreement.

Annual Members whom wish to be enrolled into auto-renew may do so by selecting the Auto-Renew Membership box found on the Profile page within the Member Area of the Website.
Within one year after a prior Membership expires, Member may renew their Membership on the Website, under the "Member Login" heading.
