In South Boston
Looks like Southie will be getting some new Hubway Stations. Mayor Marty Walsh along with the Boston Transportation Department/Boston Bikes announced that work is underway to expand the Hubway Bike Share System to 15 additional station locations throughout the city including two in South Boston.
So where will they be? One will be at the Lawn on D the other at the corner of West Broadway and D streets. Installation will begin this week.
The New Balance Hubway Bikeshare System launched in Boston in 2011 with 60 stations and 600 bicycles. With this expansion, the total number of stations in Boston will be 108 with approximately 1,100 bicycles.
“Hubway is a healthy, affordable option for Boston residents to get to school or work, and I am thrilled we are able to expand it to even more neighborhoods,” said Mayor Walsh. “We will continue to work with our community partners so that all of our residents have access to a diverse range of transportation options.”
