BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Boston Public Library is teaming up with the MBTA to give bus riders something to read this summer. The pilot program is called "Browse, Borrow, Board," and it lets riders access some of the BPL's vast library of content by scanning a QR code at certain bus stops.

The light blue decals at the bus stops are at the rider's feet. The library says a library card isn't required, and the new program gives riders access to everything from eBooks to newspapers and audiobooks. Riders are allowed to check out five things at a time for two weeks until they scan the QR code again.

Eight of the stops are on the city's fare-free bus routes. The pilot program is now active until the end of August.
