This year has seen Hubway's most expansive winter operations ever, but over the first two weeks of January we will be saying goodbye for the season to remaining stations in Boston and Somerville. Unlike in previous years, stations will remain in operation until the day of their removal to provide for additional riding. All hibernating stations are expected to relaunch in spring 2017, and all Cambridge-based stations are open year-round.

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.
