Brookline Getting Hubway This Summer

Written by Boston Biker on Mar 01

Thanks Ron for the tip

Brookline selectmen have voted to join the Hubway regional bicycle sharing network, but local cyclists may have to wait until this summer before the rubber will hit the road.

Selectmen voted to join the regional partnership Tuesday, but the town still has to hammer out a few more details on the contract with Oregon-based Alta Bicycle Share to manage the program, said Jeff Levine, Brookline’s director of planning and community development.

Levine said he’s hoping to have the contract finalized within the next couple of weeks, but once the town orders its bicycle docking stations, it could be up to 16 weeks before the stations will be received.

The docking stations will be located in Brookline Village, at Town Hall and in Coolidge Corner and Levine said he’s hoping it won’t take the full 16 weeks before the stations can be installed. (via)

    So, this means they will finally install an inbound bike lane on Beacon St. in Brookline, right? Right?

    It’s almost August and Hubway is still saying bikes are coming “this summer” to Brookline. This is going to be a short summer.
