Cambridge Hubway Stations To Stay Open in Winter
UPDATED: Wednesday, Nov. 19, 1:20 p.m.
Hubway has released the full list of stations that will stay open through December in Boston, and the list of year-round operations in Cambridge. For the full list, click here.
For the second year in a row, almost all of the Cambridge Hubway stations will remain open during the winter season. Boston stations, however, will not.
Station shutdowns will begin in mid-November, finishing with Brookline and Somerville on Wednesday, November 26. But, for the first time, a select number of Boston stations will remain open through December. The exact station list is still to come, and we will update this post when it is available. As usual, the entire system is scheduled to re-open in March or early April, depending, of course, on the unpredictable New England weather.
Hubway reports that last year, the piloted Cambridge year-round program had about 35,000 rides during the harsh, Polar Vortex-infused winter months from December through March.
“Cambridge broke new ground last year with our first-in-the-region winter operation of a bike share system,” said Cambridge City Manager Richard C. Rossi in a statement. “We are pleased to be able to build on last year’s success by continuing to offer this sustainable transportation option throughout the coming winter season.”
Although almost all of the Cambridge stations will remain in use, the Lafayette Square/Main Street and Dana Park locations will be removed from the street, Hubway officials say, in order to accommodate snow plowing.
Station updates will be posted on the station map at thehubway.com/stations.
Annual members may continue to use the Cambridge stations during the season at no additional cost. 24-hour, 72-hour, and monthly passes will be available for purchase as usual. thehubway.com
