Here's one more reason to leave your car behind on trips to Boston: the city is getting ready to launch its Hubway bike-sharing system this summer, with 600 bikes available for cheap hourly rates all across the city.

Both North and South Stations (the arrival points for the Downeaster and Concord Coach, respectively) will have on-site stations where travellers can pick up a bike. You'll need to buy a membership, and , but if you return your bike to another station within 30 minutes, the ride is free.
Before you go, download the Spotcycle app to find stations and available bikes with your phone.
Also: a group of folks is looking into doing something similar, on a smaller scale, here in the city of Portland.
