Hubway Is Expanding In Boston Voice Your Input On New Station Locations

Written by Boston Biker on Sep 13

Hubway is getting bigger and even better! The Boston Transportation Department is adding more than 70 new stations over the next two years.

The Boston Transportation Department (BTD) needs your help finding new locations in Boston for bike share stations! Starting this Saturday, BTD is hosting more than 28 workshops in neighborhoods all across Boston. You know your community best, so they need your input!

These workshops will be an opportunity for you to connect with your neighbors and discuss the best potential locations for bike share stations together.

Join the team and your neighbors at these September workshops:

Jamaica Plain – September 13, 6 PM – BCYF Hennigan, 200 Heath St
Dorchester – September 14, 6 PM – Grove Hall Library, 41 Geneva Ave

Back Bay – September 27, 6 PM – Central Library, 700 Boylston St
Charlestown – September 28, 6 PM – Charlestown Branch Library, 179 Main St

Visit boston.gov/bike-share-expansion for a full list of workshops and to learn more about how you can get involved in the planning process.

Can’t make it to a workshop in your neighborhood? No worries! Although each workshop will focus on the neighborhood where the meeting is held, BTD will have materials available to discuss all neighborhoods that are under consideration for the expansion. You are welcome to join any workshop.

BTD is looking forward to your feedback on this big expansion!

City Of Boston Bike Survey

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 08

Got this in the email. I was a little hard on them for the Charlestown thing, but be sure to let the city know that you do appreciate all of the great new infrastructure they have been putting in lately, and also your feedback will help them improve.

————————————-

City of Boston Bike Survey
Dear Friends,

The City of Boston is conducting a brief 2010 year-end survey of people who bicycle in Boston. If you ride a bike in Boston–rarely, occasionally or perhaps every single day–please take a moment to complete this important survey. We will ask questions about your riding habits and ask for your feedback on our events.

To take the survey go to http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BostonBikes.

Please forward this to anyone else you know who bikes in Boston. Thank you very much for your input and have a safe and happy holiday season!

Sincerely,

The Boston Bikes Team
