Infrastructure Updates


FixIt Station Pumps Replaced

We are excited to announce that the pumps at the FixIt Stations have been replaced and are now fully functioning.  Want to find a station near you? Check out this map. FixIt Stations will be coming soon to Manchester’s West Side – stay tuned for updates. We are still looking for an adopter for the JFK Memorial Colosseum FixIt Station. If you are able to check in on this station twice per month, please sign up here. Adopters play an important role in ensuring the FixIt Stations can keep Manchester rolling!
