More Hubway stations come to JP

Two more Hubway bike-share stations—at the Jackson Square T Station and the Green Street T Station—have been installed in Jamaica Plain. It is unclear when the new stations were installed.

Hubway is a collaboration between the City and a private company. The stations allow people to rent bicycles from an automated system, with registration available through thehubway.com.

Other Hubway stations were installed in September at Monument Square; in front of the post office at the corner of Centre and Myrtle Streets; in Hyde Square at the corner of Centre and Barbara Streets; and in Egleston Square at the corner of Columbus Avenue and Washington Street.

The lack of community meetings for input into the location of the JP stations has drawn some criticism. The Gazette has an open Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the City to obtain documents about the community process on the location of stations.
