In April 2012, the City of Boston, in conjunction with the Boston Public Health Commission, launched Hubway’s Subsidized Membership program, which offers $5/year memberships for low-income residents. Two years later, building on and deeping this program Hubway announced “Prescribe-a-Bike,” in partnership with the Boston Medical Center (BMC). This initiative aims to increase awareness of Hubway’s affordable memberships among lower income Bostonians and improve public health. Prescribe-a-Bike allows medical professionals at BMC to write $5 Hubway membership prescriptions for low-income and overweight patients. All subsidized members also receive a complimentary helmet. By Hubway’s fifth anniversary in July 2016, over 750 residents of Boston had received subsidized memberships.
