Make your voice heard!
Your feedback matters in shaping our streets. Below are active surveys, petitions and other opportunities for you to provide valuable input.
Southwest Corridor Extension
We’re gathering feedback from people who bike to shape BTD’s plans for extending this bike corridor all the way to Downtown and the Longfellow Bridge. Share your story here. BTD is also hosting the last walk-along meeting about this project next Tuesday (Dec. 3) at 7:30 a.m.
Arborway Parkways Improvement Project
The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) is restarting a project to improve the Arborway. After 25 years of disjointed planning processes with no significant progress on the ground, we need your help in holding the agency accountable to finally making meaningful changes.
Centre St. Safety Improvements
If you live or ride in West Roxbury, tell BTD you support plans for a road diet (reducing vehicle travel lanes) and bike lanes! Unless the BTD hears enough positive feedback to its current proposal, the agency may cave to pressure and settle for a much weaker one. You can submit feedback in under 5 minutes here.
Road Safety Legislation
Key road safety bills are stalled right now at the State House. Help us press lawmakers to act!
An Act to Reduce Traffic Fatalities (S.2042) — This bill includes a range of measures to curtail crashes, including reducing speed limits, codifying a safe passing distance around cyclists and other vulnerable road users, mandating side guards on state-owned trucks, and more.
An Act relative to automated enforcement (S1376) *— This bill would allow cities to deploy speed, school bus and red light cameras to better enforce traffic laws, a policy which has been proven to reduce speeding and unsafe driving, prevent crashes, and reduce repeat offenders.
Our partners at MassBike and LivableStreets Alliance are gathering feedback about how people bike around buses so they can better understand people's needs, concerns and desired improvements.
MIT Road Design & Perceived Safety Survey
Researchers at MIT's Department of Urban Studies and Planning are gathering feedback about how different street configurations impact feelings of safety and happiness. They're examining purely hypothetical improvements to Boston's streets, but feedback can help guide future investments in public spaces.
