Winter Riding Tips

This winter, more than 145 Hubway stations will remain open through January 1st. All stations in Cambridge remain open year-round. Whether you're riding a Hubway or your own bike, there are a number of things you should keep in mind to prepare for cold-weather bicycling.

The 2016-2017 winter season will be the most expansive winter operations Hubway has ever had, which means more stations and bikes will be available than any winter before. Over 145 stations will remain in operation through at least December 31, with all the stations in Cambridge continuing to operate year-round.


Hubway’s first trip was taken on July 28, 2011. From 61 stations and 610 bikes then, to 160+ stations and 1,600 bikes today, you’ve impressed us with your passion for bike share and your 4.5 million rides throughout Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, and Somerville.


Take Hubway to celebrate an entire month of Independence Day fun! Need a nudge to get you out the door and onto a bike? Here are a few suggestions on #WhereToRide in July, and every one is near a Hubway station or otherwise accessible/ride-able on Hubway.

Hubway’s 163rd station, Washington St at Melnea Cass Blvd, deployed earlier today. This is a 15-dock station located on the southwest corner of the intersection of Washington and Melnea Cass, adjacent to the Tropical Foods / El Platanero market, in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston. As one of the new stations in the Hubway system, this location also has key-dispensing capabilities for new members.

Roxbury Ymca

The two newest Hubway stations are set to deploy today, July 15th, in Roxbury:

  • Roxbury YMCA, an 11-dock station, will be located at Warren Street, directly in front of the Roxbury YMCA at 285 Martin Luther King Blvd.
  • MLK Blvd at Washington St, a 15-dock station located on MLK Blvd at Malcolm X Park, near the Melnea A. Cass Swimming Pool.

With our new Card-as-Key functionality, you can use the credit or debit card associated with your membership to check out a bike at any station. Simply go to any Hubway kiosk and insert the credit card associated with your account to get a one-time-use ride code.
