App Reviews

  • False docking station data

    By disgruntled customer 223
    I had been using a 3rd party bikeshare app but kept showing up to stations that claimed to have docks available - only to find none. Called Bluebikes about this to tell them and they recommended the official app. Same bad data with faulty station info so I had to walk over a mile from the nearest station to my destination. Service has gone rapidly downhill since it’s switched from Hubway (New Balance sponsored) to Blue Bikes (Blue Cross Blue Shield). When I called them, I was directed to a call center in North Carolina. Will not be renewing my membership and look forward to switching completely to using Lime Bike and my own personal bike more often... too bad, I’d used this service for over 6yrs
  • Never doing this again

    By AllieLee118
    I rode a blue bike from the station near my house to the station outside Harvard Kennedy School. There were two docks available both were broken. Rode to two more stations in Harvard square, one said two docks were available...there were none. I called customer service and was told there was nothing they could do and they couldn't call someone to pick up the bike because they communicate with those people via email. I also saw two other people biking around looking to dock their bikes. Two hours later in 90 degree heat and I'm NEVER doing this again. Horrible customer service and they need more docking stations or less bikes at each station.
  • Blue bikes is great, app could improve

    By rowingchamp
    I really like using blue bikes to work out, go on a leisurely ride, commute or just get somewhere faster. I wish there were more socks available at high traffic stations: near Kendall and Porter. I also have noticed that the app does not always display the number of bikes/docks that are actually available on stations that appear to have been recently added on to. Love using the app to rent a bike, it’s so easy!
  • Best Way To See Boston

    By k.smith.
    So easy to navigate the city with this app! I recommend the monthly pass even if you are here for a week. We saw so much and didn’t get tired at all! There were stations even in the residential area that we stayed in so it made getting home at the end of the day a breeze.
  • Blue Bikes rock

    By Amanda9999!!
    Having a great time getting around Boston thanks to Blue Bikes. Very user friendly app and excellent customer service. Some call times are a bit long and leads to confusion if there were docking issues (and you cannot get thru to operator) other than that, highly recommend!!
  • No Complaints so far

    By Ttala
    The app does what it claims to do. Tracks the bike availability well as well as open stations. Would love to see them use the data from ride times and bike availability to have more open stations/available bikes. It’s a tough ideal but can always improve!
  • It works

    By Dan-Gr
    It does everything it’s supposed to do. You can see the bike and dock counts for every station and get directions to and from all the stations. It also has a timer to show you how long you’ve been riding so you don’t get overcharged
  • Amazing experience and affordable

    By Dein H
    I just got a monthly plan last week and it is definitely worth it. The first few times was scary but when u know how the road works and get used to it, is totally amazing
  • Almost perfect!

    By geof rules
    I just started to use B.B. ten rides ago. I love it. My only issue has been when I couldn’t lock a bike bc the locking station was full. Also once couldn’t get a bike bc rack was empty. Once you get used to it it’s so disappointing when you can’t do it! More bike racks in JP! How about stony brook station?
  • Great app, wonderful experience, almost perfect

    By Luther Zilli
    I use this app + bluebikes to commute almost every day. I think the application is very thoughtfully designed and it’s a great experience. Two ways to make it pretty much perfect: 1. I love that you can sync your rides with the Health app, but it would be even better if it would sync calories and not just ride length. 2. Sometimes a marker shows green when there’s as little as two bikes. For high traffic docks this is misleading. Orange might be a better color to set expectations better. Thank you!
