Bike Share expansion 2017-2019
With your help, we found locations for over 120 new stations in Boston. We brought bike share to Mattapan, Roslindale and West Roxbury. We also installed new stations in high-demand areas near employment centers. Below, you will find documentation of our planning process.
We continue to add more stations in Boston. Check out our 2020-2021 system expansion!
New 2019 station locations
We found locations for 50 new bike share stations in 2019.
This expansion brought bike share to new parts of West Roxbury, Roslindale, and Dorchester. We also added more stations in neighborhoods with high use.
The Boston Transportation Department had planned this expansion with residents and community organizations since fall 2017. Our Active Transportation team hosted 42 public meetings and workshops. They attended a dozen neighborhood meetings and met with many community members and stakeholders. In 2018, we completed phase one of the bike share expansion, adding 51 stations across the City.
A map of installed and planned locations is below.

2018 station surveys
Across Boston, we identified nearly 140 potential sites from which we will select 70-80 new stations to add this year. We have:
- grouped the locations by geographic area
- provided a map of all of the locations, and
- created surveys that show the specific locations where the bike share stations will be placed.
We need you to help us narrow down the list of sites by:
- telling us which locations you like and which locations you have concerns about, and
- sharing the surveys with other people in your community
We'll accept comments through mid-May.

2017 expansion planning schedule
Thank you to everyone who participated in our fall 2017 workshops!
We hosted dozens of public workshops across the City in the fall of 2017. You and your neighbors worked together around our maps, discussed options for new station locations, and suggested the locations we should explore. Suggestions from these workshops and our online suggestion map are the basis for our preliminary maps, to be released in early 2018.
Participants focused on the workshop's neighborhood, but materials were available to discuss all neighborhoods under consideration for the expansion. You were welcome to join any workshop and as many workshops as you'd like. Snacks were provided by our friends at CLIF.
