Hubway announces new Monthly Membership option
The Hubway, Metro-Boston’s bikeshare system, is proud to announce a new Monthly Membership offering. As with Annual Membership, the Monthly Membership is available at www.thehubway.com/signup and Monthly Members will receive a key in the mail. This key allows the user to bypass a transaction at the station and to proceed directly to the bicycle. By simply sliding the key into the dock, the bicycle will release and be ready to ride.
Similar to the MBTA’s Charlie Card, the Hubway Monthly Membership will be valid from the first day of the month to the last. Also like the Charlie Card, your membership is only good during a single month. If you activate your key on the 15th, your membership still expires at the end of that month. Renewing is a snap..simply insert your expired key into any dock to release a bicycle and the monthly fee will be automatically charged to the credit card associated with your account.
No visit to the website needed, it’s that easy!
“The Monthly Membership offers the convenience and savings of annual membership but with flexible, monthly terms,” said Hubway general manager, Scott Mullen. “It’s perfect for students or anyone who wants to try Hubway on for size.”
The cost of a Monthly Membership is only $20. Those who decide to upgrade to an Annual Membership after trying Hubway for a month will receive a $20 credit toward the $85 annual cost. Simply log in to your member page and click the ‘Change Plan’ button.
Members of the Press – email ‘email@example.com’ if you’d like to speak with a Hubway representative or someone from any of the participating municipalities (Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, and Somerville).
