Bicycling In Downtown: A Bike-Friendly Environment

From Hubway - click here for Hubway's website. The final day of 2014 winter operations for all Hubway Boston-based stations will be Wednesday, December 31st. Though you may continue to see the Boston-based stations during the first week of January, they will not be operational, and riders will not be able to rent or return bikes to these stations. Almost all Cambridge-based stations will remain open throughout the winter. All closed Boston stations, in addition to those based in Brookline & Somerville, are expected to relaunch again in spring 2015.

Bicycling enthusiasts will find numerous bike-related amenities in downtown, with ample bike racks, bicyclist-oriented street signage, and four nearby Hubway bike-sharing stations (in warm weather months).

Please be considerate when bringing a bike through the Downtown Crossing pedestrian zone: walking your bike through the pedestrian zone ensures everyone's safety. More information is available through the city's Boston Bikes program.
