Making Massachusetts More Walkable
We advocate for wider sidewalks, safer intersections, and well-timed WALK lights. We encourage more walking through initiatives such as Safe Routes to School, snow removal programs, community walkability assessments and great walking maps. While everyone walks, few people think about ways to make it safer, easier and more enjoyable. WalkBoston does. We play a leading role all across Massachusetts in engaging cities and towns, state agencies, residents, developers, institutions, and elected officials to work together to improve the everyday conditions for walking.
