Summer’s warmth is gone, and along with it goes Boston’s bicycle share program.
The city is in the process of shutting down the Hubway bicycle system station-by-station this week, including the two stations in Charlestown. Twelve stations were taken offline by the end of the day Tuesday, according to a schedule on the Hubway’s website.
Here's a list of stations taken offline this week:
Monday, Nov. 19
- Andrew Station
- Brigham Circle
- Charlestown (Main and Austin streets)
- South Bay Plaza
Tuesday, Nov. 20
- Aggannis Arena
- Allston Green District
- BU Central
- Yawkey Way/Boylston
Last year, the entire system was taken offline by Dec. 1. The site provides a map for Hubway stations currently active, out of service, planned and new.
The bikes are estimated to return in March, weather permitting.
The Hubway has around 105 stations scattered in and around the metro Boston area, 72 of which are in Boston.
Officials are still developing a plan to provide helmets at the city's Hubway stations.
