Go Boston 2030
Go Boston 2030 is the City of Boston’s comprehensive transportation plan.
This plan envisions a city where all residents have better and more equitable travel choices. We are working to build efficient transportation networks that create economic opportunity. We’ll also take much needed steps to prepare for climate change.
By putting this plan in place, people will be able to access all parts of Boston safely and reliably. This is true whether you travel on foot, by public transportation, by bike, or by car.

Putting our Action Plan Projects in place
We've already started work on projects and policies listed in the Go Boston 2030 Action Plan. We are implementing early action projects and designing for longer-term initiatives. More than half of the 58 projects in the Action Plan are underway. These projects were developed from the more than 3,700 ideas submitted during our public outreach effort.
