Bike or T: Which Do You Prefer?
The Hubway is closing for the winter, but with a new Jamaica Plain-based station in the future, will you side with Boston's latest mode of transportation?
Jamaica Plain is a bike-oriented community, and though many own their own bicycles, a city-run Hubway station could be in the neighborhood's future.
Kris Carter, interim director for Boston Bikes, told the Jamaica Plain Business and Professional Association Nov. 14 that with sponsorship, JP could have a bike share station in its future.
“Everyone knows the easiest way to travel on Centre Street and not have to worry about parking is on a bike,” he said.
However, Jamaica Plain already is home to an often-used MBTA Orange Line stop at Forest Hills.
Carter said the city was looking at Hyde Square or Jackson Square as possible locations for a Hubway station in the future, but if you're not interested in cycling around town, maybe you prefer the T, which is this week's question...
