Boston Bikes

As a part of the Boston Transportation Department, the Boston Bikes team works to make bicycling fun, safe, and accessible.

Boston Bikes is part of Mayor Walsh’s vision for a vibrant and healthy city that benefits all. We help plan and design streets for bicycling, host fun rides and events, and teach Bostonians of all ages how to ride safely and responsibly in the City. We provide free bikes to low-income residents, add bike parking, and manage the City’s bikeshare program. Our goal is to make Boston a world-class bicycling city.

We also offer women-only rides and clinics. We encourage women to experience the joys of biking, and we hope to build a community among women who bike in the City.

Better Bike Lanes

We've implemented a large number of bike lanes in Boston, now we're working to make them better. Learn more about these facilities on our Better Bikes Lanes page.

Bike Counts

In 2016, we took our first steps to create an annual program using automated technology to count the number of people bicycling. During three days in September, we counted nearly 30,000 bike trips per day.
