Spring weather is in the April air, welcoming outdoor activities and the start of spring sports around the city. It also means Hubway stations are back in action after their winter hiatus. We profiled the six Hubway bike stations in the North End / Waterfront area, covering everything from their locations, pricing, and a break down of how the system works!
Hubway Locations in the North End / Waterfront:
As of now, there are no Hubway stations located in the interior, “heart” of the North End. Due to space issues in a congested neighborhood with limited sidewalk space, proposed stations have met some resistance from folks in the neighborhood. More stations are planned, as the Hubway network continues to grow. However, these six stations below surround the North End / Waterfront area, giving Hubway options for residents and commuters.
- Cross Street at Hanover Street
A mostly residential station located on the brick walkway, in between Salem Street and Hanover Street, in front of the old Famous Deli.
Available Docks: 12
- Lewis Wharf – Atlantic Avenue
A station tailored towards residents, located in front of Lewis Wharf parking lot, next to the Starbucks.
- Aquarium Station – 200 Atlantic Avenue
Against the brick wall of the Long Wharf Hotel, next to the Aquarium Blue Line MBTA Station, a strong commuter portal.
Available Docks: 15
- Rowes Wharf – Atlantic Avenue
