elimather June 14, 2012 Hubway I just signed up for Hubway today, Boston’s bike sharing program sponsored by New Balance. They had a deal for annual membership at $50 instead of their standard $85, which I learned about during “Let’s Talk about Bikes” an event at the BSA Space. BSA Space is in the recently built LEED Certified 280 Congress St. the same building shared by Trade restaurant, (Amazing Cocktails) Boloco (Sweet touch screen ordering proces) and Fidelity. My buddy from BU just started working over at Fidelity and will one day be a CFO of a fortune 500 company. Not so for me. I am fascinated by collaborative consumption and sharing things rather than acquiring them. This is why I support Hubway. After signing up for Hubway I took a survey and indicated that I get around by using my own car, by renting cars (I also belong to Zip Car), by using my own bike, by public transportation (I live by the Orange line and 39 bus), and by walking (with my dog). Furthermore, when answering the reason I signed up the only choice that fit was “to support the program.” I doubt I will use it much over the next year, but I can envision using Hubway in conjuction with the T, or even just as a way to get some exercise during the day. Each ride is free for the first 30 minutes, so I imagine going for a bike ride with a colleague just to clear our heads. How do you use Hubway? How would you? Do you know of anyone who has used it in unconventional ways? Who else is writing about Hubway? Let me know!
