Cambridge Bicycle Network Plan

Cambridge wants to know about where and how you bike.

What would make this the most bicycle friendly city on the planet? What are the ways, small or large, short-term or long-term, that would make a difference for you?

The city is developing a comprehensive bicycle network plan, and is asking everyone for their input. There will be continuing outreach and meetings this fall regarding the bike plan, and we'll keep you posted regarding those.

 

Walking never seemed so close

In developing a walking map with WalkBoston, we've discovered just how close many destinations are by foot. With about half an hour of Kendall Square, you can find yourself at Fenway for a ballgame, South Station for a trip out of town, or Harvard for a quick trip back. With summer upon us, it's a great time to get some vitamin D, explore a new part of town, and still make it back to the office.

 

Hubway Bike Share is now open in Cambridge!

Hubway Bike Sharing stations have arrived in Cambridge. Bike stations are available throughout Cambridge (as well as Boston, Somerville, and Brookline). Hubway stations are open year-round in Cambridge!

A map of stations is available from Thehubway.com or at HubwayTracker.com. The Spotcycle App is a great way to find locations and availability on your mobile device. There are several Kendall-area locations, but they can fill up on busy mornings.

Hubway is the Boston area's bike sharing network. To learn more about how it works, visit Thehubway.com.

Bikes on the T

Bring your Bike on the Bus!
You may have wondered what that funny thing is on the front of your local MBTA bus.

Most MBTA buses—with the exception of trackless trolleys operating from Harvard—have bike racks. They're simple to use and can be used at any time, even at rush hour when bikes are not allowed on trains. It's a good alternative to biking home on a rainy day.

For more on the T’s Bus Bike Rack program, visit Bikes on the T.

Did you know that? All EZRide shuttles are equipped with the same bike racks that the T has and bikes are always allowed on the shuttle.
