Hubway Shut Down For The Storm

Written by Boston Biker on Jan 07

Good to know if you use Hubway to get to work:

From Hubway:

Due to a forecast of inclement weather, Hubway will temporarily close at 12PM noon on Saturday, January 7th, to protect the safety of our riders and staff. Once the closure has begun, no bikes can be rented at the stations, though any bikes in use at that time can be returned to any Hubway station with an available dock.

Following the storm, Hubway field staff will be working to clear stations, after which the Cambridge stations will reopen. Boston stations will remain closed for the remainder of the season. While the Boston stations were originally scheduled to be removed a few at a time throughout the next week, the expected snowfall will require additional time for Hubway field staff to prepare and remove the stations.

We understand that forecasts vary and may change. Closure and re-opening information will be posted to the Hubway website, Facebook, and Twitter. For real-time station, bike, and dock availability, visit our station map, or call to speak with a Member Service Representative at 1-855-9HUBWAY (948-2929).
