Neighborhood Bike Projects

Each year, the Boston Transportation Department improves miles of its streets so that they are more bike-friendly. Below, you will find more information about recent and upcoming neighborhood projects.

The City of Boston is committed to building a complete bicycle network that will connect residents to jobs, open space, education, and local shops. Following our citywide planning efforts, Imagine Boston and Go Boston 2030, city agencies work together to plan, design, and fund major transportation projects that improve our streets for all users. These projects often include bikes lanes that are separated by curbs and/or additional buffer space from motor vehicle traffic, parked cars,  and people walking on sidewalks.

In addition, the Boston Transportation Department identifies neighborhood connections that help comple the bike network. We are able to add or improve several miles of bike routes on city streets each year.
