You've seen tourists and commuters pedaling along the city's streets on the unmistakeable "Hubway" shared bicycles. Or perhaps you're among the network's growing legion of users.
Either way, expect more of the shared bikes soon, as the city opens 11 new Hubway stations. In this crop of new stations, none are in West Roxbury. However, planners do envision one day adding all neighborhoods to the network.
The expansion will add 400 bikes to the system, according to the Herald. Expansion continues outside Boston, too, as 30 more stations will soon be up and working in Somerville, Cambridge and Brookline.
The city's acting bike czar, Kris Carter, said the exact locations of Boston's 11 new Hubway stations are still being worked out.
"We are looking at adding stations in Roxbury, Dorchester, Charlestown, Allston, and in the downtown core of Boston," Carter said in an email to Patch. "I’ll have a more definite list for you once all the permitting and community meetings are completed in the new few weeks. Look for new stations during the middle of August."
What do you think of the Hubway network? Have you or someone you known rented a Hubway bike? How did it go? And would you like to see a Hubway station in the Parkway area?
