It’s a little later in the season than we usually announce, but Hubway’s winter operations are expanding again this season!
As in the last two years, all Cambridge-based stations except the Dana Park location will be open throughout winter, and almost all Boston-based off-street stations will remain open through December, pending weather conditions. Plus, two Somerville stations will stay open through December, as well! That’s over 110 stations open through the end of the year, and 37 in Cambridge year-round!
Please reference the Hubway station map or the spotcycle app for up-to-the-minute station, dock, and bike availability. As usual, all closed stations are expected to reopen in spring 2016.
Station Move Alert: Effective immediately, the Lafayette Square Hubway station has returned to its seasonal off-street location on the sidewalk in front of the Salvation Army at 402 Mass Ave, close to the intersection of Mass Ave, Main St, and Columbia St. This is a 15-dock on-street station.
Station Alert: Effective immediately, the Dana Park Hubway station in Cambridge has been removed. This is considered a seasonal change, and the station is expected to return for full-system operations in spring 2016. We apologize for any inconvenience this move may cause.
Station Move Alert: Effective immediately, the Harvard University River Houses Hubway station has returned to its permanent (and original) location on DeWolfe Street at its intersection with Cowperthwaite Street & Memorial Drive in Cambridge. This is a 19-dock on-street station. The move is considered to be permanent.
For the third year, Hubway in Cambridge will remain in operation throughout the winter, to provide citizens with a sustainable public transportation choice year-round.
The only changes to the system for the winter months will be moving Lafayette Square station to the sidewalk on the south side of Mass. Ave., and taking Dana Park off the street; these changes are in order to better accommodate snow clearance operations.
Since opening in 2011, the Hubway system has logged over 5.1 million bicycle miles on more than 3.75 million trips, and Hubway riders have burned 228 million calories and offset 1200 tons of CO2 emissions. Hubway has over 13,000 annual subscribers and last year sold more than 78,000 24-Hour subscriptions, 10,000 72-Hour subscriptions, and 2,800 monthly subscriptions.
