California-based LimeBike has added the pedal-assist vehicles to its fleets in Medford, Melrose, Milton, Needham, Revere, and Waltham. They’re already in Bedford, Belmont, Chelsea, Everett, and Winthrop.
Sometimes it’s just not possible to rent an apartment in Boston proper. But there are plenty of more affordable options just beyond Boston’s borders, including in its northern neighbors such as Revere and Chelsea.
That effort includes more early-morning runs along 10 routes—including the 104 between Malden and Charlestown and the 70 between Waltham and Cambridge—and a switch to a tap-and-go fare system to speed boarding.
The T route will as planned roll into Chelsea in April, further opening up Boston’s northern neighbor as a hub of transit-oriented development and adding that many more commuters to South Station’s daily crush.
"Asking price can be seen as a measure of the long-term prospects of a neighborhood," NeighborhoodX research director Constantine Valhouli says. "Asking rent can be seen as a reflection of what the neighborhood is like right now."
The five-mile route will run from South Station to a stop just west of Everett Avenue, and will facilitate connections to the Red and Blue lines. An estimated 8,700 people are expected to use the route daily.
