August 23rd, Linus Bike, a city bike manufacturer, exhibited their support for an article posted on The Harvard Crimson about Boston’s successful bike-sharing program, which has been thriving for over a year, and its latest Cambridge hubway expansion.
According to the article, on Wednesday August 8th, cyclists celebrated the newest expansion to the popular bike-sharing program by completing a group bike ride from Central Square to Harvard Square in Boston, Massachusetts. The article, written by Brian X. Sullivan, explains that cyclists make up 7 to 10 percent of Boston’s population, directly influencing the extension to Cambridge, Brookline, and Somerville. According to the article, Mayor Henrietta J. Davis believes that cycling is growing increasingly popular within the city and supports the expansion of the bike-sharing program.
In the Harvard Crimson article, Harvard’s vice president for public affairs and communications Christine Heenan states that the University believes in the “environmental and social benefits of bike sharing.” According to China Reevers, representative for Linus Bike, “We are thrilled to hear about the Boston bike-sharing expansion. It is truly encouraging to see how much these people support bike transportation and understand the benefits for themselves and the environment. Linus Bike hopes for the continued success of the Hubway bike-sharing program.”
The article explains that the bike-sharing program is the most popular among Universities and hospitals and states that a yearlong bike-sharing membership will cost Harvard students $85. In addition, cyclist may buy passes for one year, three days, or just one day. The Harvard Crimson reports that the one-year-old Hubway program has recently had a little over 400,000 rides clocked in within this year.
