Fasten offers $5 rides to folks chasing Pokemon in Boston


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.
