Municipal Resource Guide

 

To realize the potential for everyday biking in Massachusetts and underscore MassDOT’s commitment to safety, MassDOT is releasing a new Statewide Bicycle Transportation Plan to make biking in Massachusetts a safe, comfortable, and convenient option for everyday travel. As part of the Bike Plan, MassDOT developed the Municipal Resource Guide for Bikeability in recognition of the important role the 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts will play. Created for municipal staff, elected officials, community members, and anyone interested in biking, the Resource Guide introduces core concepts to enhance community bikeability and directs readers to additional resources for more detailed information.

The public comment period for the draft Guide is open until December 1, 2018.

MassDOT wants your feedback on this DRAFT guide. Please email Bicycle and Pedestrian Program Coordinator Pete Sutton at Peter.sutton@state.ma.us. Or mail to MassDOT Office of Transportation Planning, 10 Park Plaza, Suite 4150, Boston MA 02116. Please submit comments by December 1st, 2018. Thank you!

Plan Vision

Massachusetts’ integrated and multimodal transportation system will provide a safe, comfortable, and well-connected bicycle network that will increase access for both transportation and recreational purposes. The Bike Plan will advance bicycling statewide for everyday travel—particularly for short trips of three miles or less—to the broadest base of users and free of geographic inequities.

Plan Goals
  • Engage the public with creative and diverse strategies
  • Understand current and projected trends
  • Make the case for bicycling
  • Identify and prioritize network gaps
  • Improve bicycle infrastructure implementation
