Hubway’s New Equity Program

Written by Boston Biker on Jan 23

This is pretty cool, I always thought cycling could be a low cost and healthy way to improve access to work for a lot of folks that have a hard time paying for cars or even public transit.

 

From Hubway:

SNAP Card to Ride Program Launch

Hubway’s new equity program, SNAP Card to Ride, formally launched last week! The Cities of Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, the Town of Brookline, and the Department of Transitional Assistance came together to provide a significant discount to low-income families and individuals. The program provides memberships for $5/month or $50/year to individuals over the age of 16 with their household EBT card. The membership includes unlimited 60-minute trips (instead of 30-minutes).

This program is part of Hubway’s ongoing commitment to improving bike share access to low-income populations. Access to this program is expected to expand in the near future to residents who participate in other public assistance programs, as well.
