Hubway Shutting Down Soon, But There Is Still Plenty Of Time To Ride

Written by Boston Biker on Nov 15

From the email:

 

Dear Hubway Member, It’s Almost That Time…

 

The low-hanging sun on the horizon and leafless trees throughout town are both indicators that the Hubway 2012 season is coming to a close. As we did last year, our pack-up plan consists initially of a phased drawdown of our on-street stations and those stations with expiring permits. This will begin on Monday, November 19th and continue through our last day of operation on Wednesday, November 28th. The system shuts down completely at 11:59pm that day, and we then collect the rest of the stations and bicycles as quickly as we can to beat the arrival of old man winter.

 

Hubway will provide 48 hours notice preceding the take down of each station.  This information will be posted to our News page, Facebook page and Twitter feed to allow you time to make alternate transit plans.  Please visit us often and stay informed on our system shut-down progress.

Between now and then there is still plenty of time to ride, so get out there and log those last few trips of the season and help us get to 700,000 rides! (As of today, we’re up to 654,971 rides!)

 

Thanks to you, Hubway has emerged in its second year of operations as a critical piece of the transit network here in metro-Boston and one of the most successful bikeshare systems in the world. We are #realtransportation, we are Hubway.
