MassDOT has worked in partnership with each of these cities to advance bicycle transportation through improved bicycle infrastructure and programs that support bicycling. MassDOT looks forward to continuing to work with these and other municipalities to realize our GreenDOT policy goal of promoting the healthy transportation modes of walking, bicycling and public transit, which is part of our core business as your multi-modal DOT.
