Hubway Station Winter Shutdown Begins
Boston’s bike co-op, The Hubway, operates from March to late November.
Summer’s warmth is gone and along with it goes Boston’s bicycle share program.
The city is in the process of shutting down the Hubway bicycle system station-by-station this week. Twelve stations were taken offline last week, according to a schedule on the Hubway’s website.
Here's a list of stations taken offline last week:
Charlestown - Main St/Austin St
South Bay Plaza
Allston Green District
The shutdown is slated to be complete by Nov. 28 this year. Last year, the entire system was taken offline by Dec. 1, 2011. The site provides a map for Hubway stations currently active, out of service, planned and new.
The bikes are estimated to return in March, weather permitting.
The Hubway has around 105 stations scattered in and around the metro Boston area, 72 of which are in Boston. There are five stations in the South End.
