Starting this Saturday, September 9th, the City of Boston is hosting workshops over the next two months to gather input on where to install new Hubway bike share stations!
Over the next two years, the City will be adding 70 new stations to the system, with many of those stations in neighborhoods that don’t currently have access to Hubway.
Your input and support will help the City determine where new stations will be installed.
It’s crucial that the City receive strong public support for Hubway expansion, because they typically only receive feedback from people opposed to new stations due to the loss of one or two parking spaces. As this video demonstrates, repurposing an on-street parking space for a bike share station provides a service to hundreds of more people everyday, while on-street spaces turn over infrequently.
Bike share is a key component of the City’s transportation system, and expanding Hubway to new neighborhoods and increasing the number of stations in existing neighborhoods is an important step in making Boston a better city for biking! In fact, Hubway contributes to over 6,000 bike trips a day in the Boston area!
You don’t have to be a resident of a neighborhood to attend the workshop, and you’re encouraged to attend whether you can be there for the whole workshop or not! City staff will have maps of the neighborhood being discussed, as well as maps of other neighborhoods for those who are interested.
Show up and speak up for Hubway!
