Better bike lanes
Through the Go Boston 2030 process, City residents envisioned better bike facilities. They asked for bike lanes that would be more comfortable and safe. Residents also asked for better bicycling connections between homes, jobs, schools, and open space. You can learn more about our efforts to build better bike lanes below.
About our work
Boston has a large network of conventional bike lanes. These lanes dedicate about five feet of space in the street for bicycling. As we’ve added bike lanes across the City, more people have chosen to ride a bike to work, to the T, to farmers markets, or just for fun.
However, many people don’t feel comfortable riding in conventional bike lanes. That’s why we are creating more routes with more separation between drivers and bicyclists. We're also creating traffic-calmed local streets. We want to not only provide comfortable, safe places for biking, but also make the streets safer for everyone.
