Free MBTA, Bluebikes Passes for Employees in Three Squares Main Street District

To support COVID-19 recovery, Boston's government is offering preloaded MBTA and Bluebikes passes to employees in five Main Street Districts, including Three Squares Main Street in Jamaica Plain. The first 1,000 employees who sign up for the program from Three Squares, Mission Hill, Nubian Square, East Boston, and Fields Corner, will receive the passes. This is a pilot program being phased in during the next two months. Some applicants will be selected to receive an MBTA pass with a full $60 right away, and others will get two cards after four weeks values that add up to $60, according to the city's website. Bluebikes pass-holders will be able to take as many trips as they want during the two-month period.

Forest Hills Doesn’t Have a Bluebikes Station…But It Will…

You would think that one of the major MBTA stations, a hub of transportation for the area if you will, would have a Bluebikes station. But alas, Forest Hills doesn't currently have a station for anyone to get on a bicycle and pedal away. Bluebikes is a public bicycling sharing system and there are more than 260 Bluebikes stations across Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Somerville, with more than 2,500 shareable bicycles. But currently there isn't a station at Forest Hills. Currently, the nearest Bluebikes stations to Forest Hills are located at Williams and Washington streets (about .5 mile away); Curtis Hall (about .6 mile away); and Archdale Road and Washington Street in Roslindale (.8 mile away).
