Sign up for a Bluebikes Income-Eligible membership in person by visiting one of our guided enrollment centers.

You must document your income eligibility or bring proof of participation in one of the following public assistance programs:

  • Free or Reduced Lunch*

  • Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8)

  • MassHealth

  • Pell Grants

  • Public Housing (e.g. Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, or Somerville Housing Authorities)

  • WIC

Individuals who do not participate in any public assistance program may still qualify based on income.

*Applies only to residents outside of Boston, since free lunches are provided to all BPS students.
