Hubway System to Reopen in April

Hubway Bike Share bikes near Copley Square in Boston. The system will be back online in April.

There’s still snow on the ground and it still feels like the dead of winter, but a staple of summer in Boston will be back online before you know it.

Bicycles will be available throughout the Hubway bike sharing system the first or second week of April, according to Nicole Freedman, director of bicycle programs for the city of Boston.

In the South End, three stations from previous years will be back, including the Tremont Street station in front of the South End Library, one at Tremont and Berkeley Streets, and Columbus Avenue at Mass. Ave. 

Three new stations are planned for the South End, including Washington Street at Rutland Street, Boston Medical Center and Washington Street at Waltham Street. 

Freedman also said that Hubway officials still have their sights set on setting up a network of stations in Jamaica Plain.

“We’re very optimistic,” she said of a JP expansion. She said the JP stations would be opened in late summer.

Thirty to 50 stations will be reopened throughout Boston leading up to the April full system launch, Freedman said.
