The Hubway bikeshare network has begun to install stations in preparation of the system relaunch for 2013! Over the coming weeks roughly five stations per day will be installed and when a critical mass of stations are on the ground, the system will reopen. Relaunch date TBD, but likely later in March (weather dependent). Please check out our Twitter feed and Facebook page for up to the minute information and thanks for your support of Hubway!
Boston’s popular three-season bicycle share system has done more than provide residents with a quick, cheap mode of transportation, it’s taken a few cars off the road in the process.
A city official said in order to have a station in a neighborhood a network would have to be built.
The plan to create a bike sharing program in Seattle is clicking into a higher gear. Puget Sound Bike Share hopes to launch in 2014. Organizers updated Seattle officials Tuesday saying they hope to hire a vendor by the spring.
To get some guidance for the Seattle effort, KUOW spoke with the founder of one of the fastest-growing systems in the US, Nicole Freedman. Freedman started Boston’s program, The Hubway, which launched in 2011.
PORTLAND — Portland could be joining the growing list of cities that offer bike-sharing programs, but some question whether the city is large enough to support one.
Portland officials will study the issue this spring as part of a planning initiative funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
