Pete Sutton, MassDOT’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program Coordinator, performs the inaugural pump for the State Transportation Building’s new, secure bike pump.

The bike parking facility of the State Transportation Building received a new, secure bike pump and stand this fall. Free and open to the public, MassDOT staff, local residents and visitors are welcome to use the pump located at 10 Park Plaza in Downtown Boston!

To access the bike pump station, bicyclists should enter through the vehicle parking ramp on Charles Street and follow the parking structure’s path down to the Upper Garage level. Bicyclists should turn right (towards the elevator bank) to access the bike parking facility and the secure bike pump and stand.

MassDOT employees are encouraged to consider taking active, healthy modes of transportation – such as walking, bicycling and taking transit – to and from work and during the day to meetings. No bicycle? No problem! The State Transportation building has three bicycles available through its bicycle pool for MassDOT employee use during working hours for outside meetings. For more information regarding the bicycle pool, please contact Benjamin Sloot at Benjamin.Sloot@dot.state.ma.us.

Katherine Knapp, Office of Transportation Planning, tries her hand at MassDOT’s newest piece of bicycling infrastructure.

With the weather starting to settle into a beautiful fall, there is no better time to try a bike-based commute to work or to simply enjoy an autumn weekend by bike.

We invite you to check all MassDOT bicycle-related information, initiatives and programs.
