Hubway, turning 1, is about to expand

It all began a year and a day ago, when hundreds of cyclists fanned out at once from Government Center to deliver gleaming silver-and-green Hubway bikes to a network of solar-powered stations.

From that start, Hubway has generated about twice as many trips and paid subscribers as planners projected, easily eclipsing similar-sized systems in Denver and Minneapolis. It cracked the 350,000-trip mark two weeks before its first birthday and has seen usage climb each month since reopening in March after a winter hiatus — all without major accident or injury.
