Hubway is a bike share program, which is a form of public transportation by bike. It's owned by the municipalities of Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Somerville, and operated by Motivate.
Hubway stations are distributed throughout Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Somerville, and are placed based on population and transport needs. Check out the System Map for the exact locations.
Hubway launched in July 2011 with 610 bicycles and 60 stations throughout the City of Boston.
In the summer of 2012, the system expanded to Brookline, Cambridge, and Somerville.
By the end of 2013, the system footpring covered approximately 20 square miles, and by the end of 2015, 25 square miles.
More than 5 million trips have been taken by Hubway riders since the 2011 launch.
There are stations serving every line of the T, commuter rail and ferry, as well as more than 60 bus routes to accommodate multi-modal trips.
