Some of you may have seen the article in the Boston Globe about the success of the Hubway system. Boston has exceeded almost everyone’s expectations in terms of the number of members signed up, and the amount those members have used the bikes. With over 2,300 annual subscribers and 36,600 station-to-station trips, the numbers so far indicate greater subscription and usage rates than both Minneapolis and Denver, which launched with comparably-sized systems.
It’s a great thing to see more bicyclists on the road, and especially new bicyclists who might be trying out riding in an urban environment for the first time. We are happy to have a partnership with the City of Boston to provide bike safety classes geared specifically to Hubway users so that these fresh faces can get where they’re going comfortably and confidently. Check out our Education Page or see below for listings of when these classes are taking place. They are free and open to the public.
