Interest in alternatives to private vehicular travel is increasing around the country due to a number of reasons:
Health, environmental, and economic benefits of walking and bicycling
High costs of automobile congestion, physical inactivity, air pollution
Large amount of infrastructure needed to move and store vehicles
The City of Framingham is working to better serve bicyclists and pedestrians throughout the community by improving the road and trail system. The City established its first-ever Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan in 2017, and will be seeking state funding through the MassDOT Complete Streets program.
