MassDOT Bike Friendly Award Seal
MassDOT today became the first transportation agency in the nation recognized as a “Bicycle Friendly Business” by the League of American Bicyclists.  The League today announced 67 awards nationally to businesses, cities, non-profits, and government agencies, including a Bronze medal to MassDOT for encouraging a bike-friendly atmosphere for customers and employees.

"We're proud to be the first DOT in the nation recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Business," said MassDOT Secretary Richard A. Davey. "MassDOT's core business is transportation and consistent with our 'Green DOT policy' we're committed to promoting bicycling as a healthy and efficient mode of travel."

Learn more about MassDOT's GreenDOT policy and Healthy Transportation Compact. As a Bicycle Friendly Business MassDOT is leading by example, providing travel options to employees and creating a workplace that supports healthy travel choices of walking, bicycling and transit to reduce congestion and greenhouse gases and create a healthier and more sustainable Commonwealth.

MassDOT has earned its Bronze medal through such initiatives as Bay State Bike Week, the only such week-long statewide bicycling education and awareness promotion in the nation. MassDOT has encouraged more bicycling by parking rack facilities at its Boston headquarters and making “pool” bikes available for employees to ride to a meeting or a worksite. Each MassDOT Highway Division District Office has designated a staff member as Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator.

We encourage other organizations to take our Earth Day challenge to support healthy transportation choices for both their employees and customers.  To learn more about actions and tools you can use in your workplace, please visit MassRIDES, MassDOT’s Travel Option Team, and the League of American Bicyclists.
