Hubway Launch Party!
Hubway Expands to Cambridge, Somerville, Brookline, new parts of Boston
New stations already being installed, opening across the region
The Hubway Bicycle Share system is now expanding across the Boston region, with new stations coming online this week in Cambridge, Somerville, Brookline, and new areas of Boston.
When the expansion is complete, Cambridge will have a total of 24 stations; Somerville will have 12; Brookline will have three, and is looking for a location for a fourth; and Boston will get an additional 11 stations, bringing its total count to 72. The entire Hubway system will comprise 111 stations and 1,100 bicycles by the end of the season.
The system is completely interoperable between municipalities, so users can pick up a bike at one station and return it to another one anywhere in the Hubway network. To celebrate the expansion, there will be a series of events on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012, starting at Brookline Town Hall at 9 a.m. and moving to Somerville City Hall at 10 a.m., then Cambridge City Hall at 11 a.m., followed by a celebration in Harvard Square. There will be additional events at select stations around the region, with details coming soon.

More About Brookline Town Hall
Situated in the heart of Brookline Village, Brookline's six-story town hall is home to the majority of the town's offices and serves as a meeting place for its many boards, commissions and committees. The building was completely gutted and renovated in 2008.
Town Hall is home to the school, finance and public works departments, as well as the offices of the town clerk, town counsel, town administrator and Board of Selectmen. The police, fire and health departments are housed in adjacent buildings in Brookline Village.
Metered parking is available in a lot between Town Hall the Pierce School and on nearby streets, though spaces can be hard to find during evening meetings. Town Hall is a short walk from the Brookline Village Station on the T.
Public restrooms are located adjacent to the Treasurer's Office on the ground floor, or across from the elevators on all other floors.
