Regional Bicycle Plan

SRPEDD's Regional Bicycle Plan envisions a safe and connected bicycle transportation system for all ages and abilities across Southeastern Massachusetts

The Regional Bicycle Plan (RBP) outlines a comprehensive strategy for improving and expanding bicycle infrastructure in Southeastern Massachusetts to create a safe, efficient, and connected bicycle network for all users.

The Regional Bicycle Plan is being developed with the following goals:

  1. Improve the ability of bike users of all ages and abilities to safely, comfortably, and conveniently travel across the region   
  2. Prioritize connections that would enhance bikeability for underserved and vulnerable populations   
  3. Improve public health outcomes through the advancement of bicycling infrastructure 
  4. Reduce total vehicle miles traveled and GHG emissions by advancing bike networks and infrastructure   
  5. Support community connectivity and economic development through the advancement of bicycle routes and infrastructure in the region    
  6. Facilitate the development of the regional bicycle network by increasing capacity, resources, and funding for projects 
  7. Increase community engagement, local awareness, and public support for bicycle networks and infrastructure
