Hubway Bike Sharing Service to Add 11 Boston Stations — None in Jamaica Plain

The growing network of shared bikes is adding 11 Boston stations soon. But Jamaica Plain still won't have any.

Hubway Bike Sharing Service to Add 11 Boston Stations — None in Jamaica Plain

You've seen tourists and commuters pedaling along the city's streets on the unmistakeable " Hubway" shared bicycles. Or perhaps you're among the network's growing legion of users.

Either way, expect more of the shared bikes soon, as the city opens 11 new Hubway stations. In this crop of new stations, none are in JP. However, planners do envision one day adding JP to the network.

The expansion will add 400 bikes to the system, according to the Herald. Expansion continues outside Boston, too, as 30 more stations will soon be up and working in Somerville, Cambridge and Brookline.

Hubway users pay a membership fee, plus charges for rides more than 30 minutes.

The city's acting bike czar, Kris Carter, said the exact locations of Boston's 11 new Hubway stations are still being worked out.

"We are looking at adding stations in Roxbury, Dorchester, Charlestown, Allston, and in the downtown core of Boston," Carter said in an email to Patch. "I’ll have a more definite list for you once all the permitting and community meetings are completed in the new few weeks. Look for new stations during the middle of August."

One of the two new Charlestown stations would be at Main and Austin. That one has been approved locally. The other would be at Warren and Chelsea. There's a  Thursday evening.
