Plan Vision

Massachusetts’ integrated and multimodal transportation system will provide a safe, comfortable, and well-connected bicycle network that will increase access for both transportation and recreational purposes. The Bike Plan will advance bicycling statewide for everyday travel—particularly for short trips of three miles or less—to the broadest base of users and free of geographic inequities.

Plan Goals

  • Engage the public with creative and diverse strategies
  • Understand current and projected trends
  • Make the case for bicycling
  • Identify and prioritize network gaps
  • Improve bicycle infrastructure implementation
