After a year in Boston, New Balance's bike-sharing program, Hubway, has expanded rapidly into Cambridge and Somerville. This expansion gives Harvard students a cheaper and greener, albeit more strenuous, alternative to the shuttle.

Stations have been installed at Mass. Ave., the Charles Hotel, Brattle St., and more recently the Law School and DeWolfe St. Sadly, Hubway stations aren't acessible to Quadlings, arguably those who would benefit most from a bike sharing program for their morning and evening commutes to and from the Yard.
