Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Sponsors Free Rides to COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments
Here’s what you need to know if you’re riding to your appointment this spring.
Free Rides Starting With Phase 3 Eligibility
With phase 3 of COVID-19 vaccine eligibility underway across Massachusetts as of April 19, Metro-Boston riders can take a free ride to their vaccine appointments, courtesy of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, the title sponsor of Bluebikes.
As the largest health plan in Massachusetts looks to boost access to COVID-19 vaccines and support transportation needs, residents can take advantage of complimentary Adventure Passes in any of the 10 municipalities in which Bluebikes operates. To access your free ride, just download the Bluebikes app, tap Adventure Pass, and use the vaccination codes BLUEVAX1 or BLUEVAX2, providing residents who require two vaccine doses with Bluebikes trips for both appointments. We’re committed to helping Metro-Boston residents getting vaccinated reach their appointments safely and quickly, while providing a fun option to get around the city, as well!
If you’re heading to an appointment at Hynes Convention Center or the Reggie Lewis Center, Blue Cross will be offering complimentary bike valets at Bluebikes stations nearest those mass vaccination sites starting April 26. Expanded docking and bikes will be available at the following stations to make coming and going easier when schedules are busy (look for the station valet icon on the Station Map here).
