Boise GreenBikes adds additional parking locations at Boise State University

   The Boise GreenBike system recently added five new Flex Hub bike parking locations on the campus of Boise State University.  These new hubs allow GreenBike users to lock up the bikes without paying the $2 out-of-hub fee. The new locations are: on the southeast corner of the Micron Business and Economics Building, across the street from the Brady Street Parking Garage; in front of the Morrison Center; on Bronco Lane in front of the Kinesiology Building; to the south of the Environmental Research Building; on the northwest corner of Albertsons Library near the Friendship Bridge.
   Previously, there were only two station hub locations where the bikes could be returned without an additional fee:  in front of the Student Union Building, and at the Interactive Learning Center. The new locations use existing bicycle racks that are identified as Flex Hub locations with Boise GreenBike stickers and sign panels. A Flex Hub can be used for both regular bikes and Boise GreenBike.
