PHOTOS: Hubway Arrives in Charlestown

It took time, effort and argument, but Hubway has finally joined the Charlestown community.

Kate Henderson posted the above photo on our Facebook page Tuesday night, and Neighborhood Liaison Danielle Valle-Fitzgerald posted the second photo on twitter Wednesday morning.

Henderson's shot shows the newly-installed bike-sharing station near the intersection of Chelsea Street and Warren Street—the location that about the program coming to town.

Danielle's shot features the less controversial location near the corner of Main Street and Austin Street.

The program's leaders said they will . The program may also consider a location near Sullivan Square as the network grows.

The stations were supposed to be installed by the end of August, but were delayed for unspecified reasons.

Have you tried the Hubway program yet? How have you liked it?

1 p.m., 9/12/12. This article has been edited to correct the location of the first Hubway station pictured. An earlier version of this article identified the location incorrectly.

Will there be a discount offered for Charlestown residents? They offered one for Roxbury residents - http://www.boston.com/yourtown/news/roxbury/2012/06/discounted_hubway_memberships.html

I'm all for more bikes in the city! I've always been curious, though, about how Hubway gets around the bike helmet requirement. I never see people on Hubway bikes with helmets on. Ok, maybe sometimes, but 99% of the time riders are sans helmet.

I think only kids have to wear helmets. http://massbike.org/resourcesnew/bike-law/

My mistake. I just reread the bike regs and you are correct. I remembered it wrong.
