Walk/Ride Day

Join the celebrations on the last Friday of every month! People throughout the Boston area and other parts of MA, NH, ME and beyond are doing it! Just use green transportation that day: commuting by bike (of course) is great, but going by foot, bus, or train - even carpooling and walking part way - count! If you wear something green to show your support, you can also get discounts and freebies from an ever-growing list of sponsoring businesses throughout the region.

Active, Healthy, Ready to Learn (and Fighting Climate Change) with Safe Routes to School

In 1969, about half of all American children walked or biked to school. Of those who lived within a mile from school, 87% of children walked or biked. Today, less than 15% do. This has enormous implications not only for reducing vehicle emissions and morning gridlock, but also for children’s health and readiness to learn. WalkBoston has been working on this issue since 2001, when it piloted a first Safe Routes to School Program in Arlington, a Boston suburb. This program was so successful that it spread to other communities in Metro Boston.
