To boost access to COVID-19 vaccines and support transportation needs as more Massachusetts residents become eligible, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts will sponsor FREE Bluebikes rides to and from vaccination sites located within the Bluebikes system beginning on Monday, April 19.
Residents are eligible for two complimentary Bluebikes Adventure Pass rides, available across the system's 10 municipalities: Arlington, Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Newton, Revere, Somerville and Watertown. Blue Cross is the title sponsor of Bluebikes, which is owned by the municipalities and operated by Lyft.
In addition, complimentary bike valets will be available at Bluebikes stations nearest two mass vaccination sites, the Hynes Convention Center (Newbury St. and Hereford St.) and the Reggie Lewis Center (Roxbury Crossing), beginning April 26, courtesy of Blue Cross and Lyft. Bluebikes associates will offer expanded docking and bike availability to make coming and going easier.
How it works:
1) Download and open the Bluebikes app on a mobile device
2) Select "Adventure Pass" from the dropdown menu
3) Use the vaccination codes "BLUEVAX1" and "BLUEVAX2” to get complimentary Bluebikes trips for both appointments. Each code will unlock one free Adventure Pass beginning April 19.
