Boston, MA, October 19, 2020 – Oxford Properties (‘Oxford’), a leading global real estate investor, developer and manager, and Pappas Enterprises announced today that 645 Summer Street will become part of the Bluebikes, Metro Boston’s public bike share system.
The new station will include a 19-dock station and 10 bicycles. The popular bike sharing model offers members access to more than 3,500 bikes located at over 330 stations across 8 communities in metro Boston including Arlington, Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, Everett, Newton, Somerville, and Watertown (Chelsea and Revere Stations are launching later this year). The addition is sponsored by Oxford and Pappas Enterprises as part of their commitment to supporting greater connectivity across the South Boston community. They are exploring a second station in the neighborhood with the City of Boston.
“Pappas Commerce Center sits in a critical location along the evolving waterfront surrounded by job growth and great residential neighborhoods. This area continues to grow and flourish and Oxford and Pappas are pleased to bring Bluebikes to the neighborhood to be proactive about mobility solutions and support access to healthy, convenient and affordable transportation,” said Brian Barriero, Vice President of Operations (US Region) for Oxford Properties.
“A leading recommendation of The South Boston Seaport Strategic Transit Plan is to expand biking connections in the community,” said a Pappas Enterprises spokesperson. “Adding a new Bluebike station in this highly-travelled corridor addresses an important community concern and we are pleased to offer this new option.”
