The Massachusetts Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board appointed through the leadership of the Patrick-Murray Administration and Secretary Davey has new members and a new focus and operation. The Board serves in an advisory role to advance bicycling and pedestrian transportation for MassDOT and other state agencies. 

In addition to the newly appointed membership, the board’s work plan established at its first meeting in January 2012 established clear goals to advance MassDOT’s Healthy Transportation Compact, GreenDOT Policy, and mode shift objective. 

Bike Ped Advisory Board, Brockton, July 2012Since being established in 2004, the Board met in Boston, and that has also changed.  In May the Board met in Worcester, where District Three and Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission staff presented current project information.   In July the Board met in Brockton, left, where District Five and the Old Colony Planning Council highlighted projects that improved walking and bicycling conditions.

The Board will meet in Lowell on November 14, where District Four and Northern Middlesex Council of Governments staff will focus on regional walking and bicycling improvements.

The Board’s next meeting is September 19 at the State Transportation Building, 10 Park Plaza, Boston. To learn more or be placed on the Board mailing list, contact Josh Lehman, josh.lehman@state.ma.us
