Fasten offers $5 rides to folks chasing Pokemon in Boston

You know it's your destiny.

Are you playing Pokemon Go this summer, but want to avoid some of the hassles of navigating the real world?


Boston-based ride-share company Fasten is offering an unusual promo this weekend to gamers trying to “catch ‘em all”: anyone taking a ride to or from nine “hotspots” for Pokemon hunting will pay only a flat fee of $5 for the ride.


The offer is good on any four-passenger or less ride that is shorter than 25 minutes, at which point, regular fares will apply after the $5 promo. Tolls are not included.


Destinations supported by the promotion include:

  • Cleveland Circle
  • Harvard Square
  • Central Square
  • Union Square (in Allston)
  • Union Square (in Somerville)
  • Porter Square
  • Kenmore Square
  • Boston Common
  • Davis Square

The company advises riders to make sure that their trips begin or end in the hotspot in order to get their deal — you can check an exact map to be sure you’ll be covered on the company’s blog.

The promotion ends Sunday at 11:59 p.m.
