Boston Bikes

The Boston Transportation Department works to make bicycling fun, safe, and convenient.

We help plan and design streets for bicycling, manage the City's public bike share program, and add bike parking. We also host fun rides and events and teach Bostonians of all ages how to ride safely and responsibly in the City.

We help all Bostonians experience the joys of biking and support the growing community of cycling in Boston.

Better Bike Lane Projects

We've implemented a large number of bike lanes in Boston, now we're working to make them better.

Our public bike share is coming to a street near you! In 2021, we're focused on Mattapan and Hyde Park. We want your help in finding the best spots.

Bike Data

More and more people in Boston are choosing to bike! By 2030, our goal is increasing bicycling fourfold. We collect and analyze data each year to understand our progress toward that goal.
