The Hubway system launched successfully in July of 2012 in Cambridge and currently has more than 3500 Cambridge residents, employees and students as members.  Over 6 million trips have been taken since Hubway launched. In 2017, five Cambridge Hubway stations were added to the system for a total of 49 stations in the City and 192 in the four Hubway communities combined.

These funds will contribute to the purchase, installation and maintenance of approximately 10 additional stations and bicycles, pending identification of acceptable locations.  Potential locations include: King Open School; Mt. Auburn Street, near Belmont/Watertown line; Alewife Triangle and Quadrangle; East Cambridge, near Cambridge Street; and West Cambridge, outer Huron Avenue.
