BOSTON — Boston Hubway riders will be able to access 57 stations in the city this winter season as part of new extended service this year.
We reported earlier this month that Hubway was extending service in Boston this winter and now we know exactly which stations will be open (see the full list below). The extended winter service means these stations will stay open through the end of December.
In preparation for winter, Hubway has also moved some stations to off-street areas close to their original locations. Stations at BU Central, Agganis Arena, Yawkey Way at Boylston Street, Boylston Street at Arlington Street, Faneuil Hall and Cambridge Street at Joy Street were all moved this week. The Boston Medical Center (East Concord at Harrison Avenue), Charlestown (Main Street at Austin Street), Jackson Square T and Kenmore Square/Commonwealth Avenue stations will also be moved at a later date.
All Cambridge Hubway stations will stay open throughout the winter, as they did last year. Stations in Brookline and Somerville will close for the winter and the final day of regular season operations will be Nov. 26.
All stations that are closed for the winter are expected to reopen in March or April 2015.

Hubway announced today that it will allow riders to use the system in Boston far longer than in years past, keeping several stations open through December 31, depending on weather conditions. In Cambridge, which tested the service last winter, a number of Hubway locations will remain open throughout the entire winter.
Today, Hubway released information on which stations that will remain open in Boston between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the one that will stay open all winter in Cambridge.
