Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (Blue Cross) has partnered with Boston, Cambridge, Brookline, and Somerville municipalities; bikeshare operator Motivate International Inc.; and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council to enhance and expand the Boston metropolitan area bikeshare program. Through this six-year partnership, Hubway bikeshare (which was launched in 2011) will re-launch as Blue Bikes and over 1,000 new bikes and 100 new stations will be added to the system by the end of 2019. Blue Cross’s sponsorship will also support general upgrades to the mobile app, stations, and bikes, but members can access Blue Bikes via the same app and account that they used for Hubway, as the transition will be seamless.
