New Balance Hubway Launched in July 2011
The innovative New Balance Hubway bike share system launched in Boston in July 2011 in partnership with the City of Boston. With 61 stations and more than 600 bikes around the city, New Balance Hubway is a program under Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino's nationally recognized Boston Bikes initiatives to make Boston one of the world's premiere cycling cities. New Balance Hubway promotes an environmentally friendly way of transportation by allowing users to rent bikes from one station and return them at another in the city. New Balance Hubway includes a state-of-the-art, third generation, solar powered automated system to track usage. In 2011, more than 3,000 early adopters signed on and 80,000 trips were taken. New Balance is proud to partner with the City of Boston to help promote physical fitness and alternative transportation.
