Bluebikes Mt Auburn Station

On Thursday, Sept. 6 and Friday, Sept. 7, the City of Cambridge will host celebratory events to mark Bluebikes’ arrival into new neighborhoods. All community members are invited to attend the free events, which will include refreshments from local businesses, prize giveaways, a raffle for a free annual Bluebikes membership, and information about Bluebikes’ Income-Eligible Program.

The pop-up events will be held at two of Cambridge’s newest Bluebikes stations:

  • 699 Mt. Auburn St. (outside of Star Market), Thursday, Sept. 6, 7:00 a.m. -- 10:00 a.m.
  • Harvard St. at Greene-Rose Heritage Park, Friday, Sept. 7, 4:00 p.m. -- 7:00 p.m.

In addition to these locations, new Bluebikes stations were recently installed at Rogers St. at Land Blvd. and Massachusetts Ave. at Hadley St. / Walden St., with additional stations expected to be deployed in Cambridge this fall. This is part of Boston, Brookline Cambridge, and Somerville’s joint effort to expand options for sustainable transportation by increasing access to Bluebikes throughout the communities.

Event attendees will receive a Bluebikes Passport Card. Those who attend at least one event at each of the four municipalities and get their Passport Card stamped will receive $15 off their new or next annual membership, as well as a limited-edition T-shirt.
