New Hubway Stations Planned for the South End

Boston’s bike-sharing service Hubway announced this week that more than 75 percent of its bicycle stations are open and operational.

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. 

    “After a very snowy winter we are thrilled to announce that Hubway is open for business,” the company said in an announcement. “Our team will continue to add stations and expect to be fully deployed by mid-April.”

    The current Hubway footprint is 112 stations and 1100 bicycles with several updates to the 2012 configuration:

    Boston:

    Additional docking points installed at 10 of the most highly utilized stations, including Congress/Sleeper, Post Office Square, Beacon/Mass Ave, and Charles Circle

    Summer/Arch station has moved one block to the corner of Franklin/Arch and has added 12 docking points to accommodate demand

    TD Garden/Legends Way station has moved to the sidewalk along Causeway St at Portal Park and added 7 docking points

    Protests Planned Against MBTA Bag Checks

    A pro-4th Amendment coalition with roots in the Occupy movement will stage a protest of random bag inspections at T platforms around the city this weekend, including Kenmore and Ruggles stations.

    Defend the 4th, a self-proclaimed “group of individuals from a broad array of political/social leanings and organizations,” plans to demonstrate across Boston Feb. 2, according to an email to Patch from coalition spokesman Garret Kirkland.

    “Any instances of ‘random’ searches being conducted on a citizen or visitor to the Commonwealth warrants protest on 4th Amendment grounds,” Kirkland wrote. “We believe that it is a gross violation of our rights and of the principles of our nation, that any person should have to prove that they are not doing anything wrong.”

    Defend the 4th plans to march from noon to 3 p.m. Feb. 2, along several branches of the T, according to a flyer. Groups will begin at Harvard Square, South Station, Lechmere, Kenmore and Ruggles T stops. read more
