Cambridge Bike Sharing Stations

Cambridge Bike Sharing Stations (Hubway)
Penny FarthingThe initial project in Cambridge will include 24 bike sharing stations in locations throughout the city. The entire system in Cambridge, Somerville, Brookline and Boston is interchangeable so you can use any bike or station at your convenience. Several of these stations have now been installed and the rest should be installed over the next week. An official opening event will take place on Wed, Aug 8 but each station is operational when it is installed.

Note that stations will be installed throughout the month of August.

  1. The long granite stone bench lining the shady side of the Inman Square mini-park is now blocked by New Balance Hubway bike locks. If the hardware was only a couple of feet apart from the bench, people could still sit there. This is the same mini-park that had family concerts one day per week this summer.

    I guess next summer folks will have to bake in the sun if they want to sit.

  2. I have also started to become concerned about where these bicycle vending machines are located. Though it’s not part of this year’s rollout, there is a plan to locate a station at the City Hall Annex. The early plan I heard was that they would be tearing out the holly bushes in the small park in order to accommodate the bike station. That would suck.

    I have an even greater concern based on a conversation I had with one of the City’s consultants who was working more generally on bike rack installations. When I asked how much say a resident would have if a multiple-bike rack was proposed in front of his house, he chastised me saying that because I didn’t own the sidewalk it was not my business. I found this to be quite arrogant.

  3. I’m disappointed that a Hubway station displaced a popular street performer area in front of Au Bon Pain in Harvard Square.
