HelmetHub makes cycling safer for Boston

Just when we thought Hubway could not get even better for Boston, the bike sharing system installed its first helmet vending machine as a move towards safer cycling that is accessible to everyone. HelmetHub gives Hubway riders the option to rent a helmet before borrowing a bike. The first HelmetHub machine is a trial run of a line of vending machines that could be installed all across the city next season, assuming riders like us agree that helmet sharing is a great idea.

Bostonians can now pick up a helmet at the Boylston and Mass Ave station for a $2 rental fee before exploring their city on two wheels. The vending machine also offers a cheap way to buy a helmet at only $20. All the helmets are cleaned and checked over for safety after they are returned so that we can ride carefree.

Learn everything you need to know to get started with Hubway today, then grab a helmet and get riding!
