Go Boston 2030

Go Boston 2030 is a City of Boston initiative that envisions a bold transportation future for the City for the next five, 10, and 15 years.

Go Boston 2030 produced a draft Vision Framework in 2015. It was based on 5,000 questions and comments collected from the public and the more than 600 people who participated in the Visioning Lab.

In fall 2015, we collected transportation project and policy ideas at “Ideas on the Street” pop-ups and Idea Roundtables. We also gathered stories through “Share Your Trip with BTD.” In spring 2016, more than 4,000 people selected the type of future and the projects and policies that they wanted to prioritize. These ideas and this feedback were used to develop the Vision and Action Plan released in March 2017.
