After an extremely successful inaugural season in 2011, the popular regional bike share program Hubway will reopen Thursday, March 15, 2012 with approximately 60% of stations live and operational.
All five Harvard-sponsored stations in Allston and Longwood will be operational and stocked with bikes Thursday morning:
- Longwood Medical area at the Avenue Louis Pasteur at Longwood Avenue.
- Soldiers Field Park
- Barry’s Corner at 219 Western Ave.
- Harvard Athletics at the corner of North Harvard Street and Soldiers Field Road.
- The Harvard Innovation Lab (125 Western Ave)
Hubway is funded through government grants, sponsorships, station advertising, and user revenue. Harvard’s sponsorship is part of its longstanding commitment to sustainability and its continuing effort to foster connectivity among Harvard campuses. In addition to the Boston locations, Harvard has initially committed to 4 stations in Cambridge as part of Phase II of Hubway.
