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:

Andrew Station

Brigham Circle

Charlestown - Main St/Austin St

South Bay Plaza

Washington/Lenox

Washington/Waltham

Aggannis Arena

Allston Green District

BU Central

Buswell/Park

Overland/Brookline

Yawkey Way/Boylston

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.

Hooray; soon we won't have concern about potential bus-cyclist collisions during winter in the South End from Hubway putting its Washington St. stations in the street squarely in front of SilverLine bus stops, despite room on adjoining wide sidewalks.

Do we know if there have been any accidents in that exact area? Might be something for me to look into more. Sounds dangerous.
