Parking-Protected Bike Facility Demo

Please join the Vision Zero Task Force to learn more about parking-protected bike facilities:
Tuesday, July 12, 2016
8:00 - 11:00 am
Beacon St & Mass Ave
(west side of Beacon St)

Tomorrow the Vision Zero Task Force will hold a demonstration, on Beacon St near Mass Ave, so that you and others can see a parking-protected bike facility in action and learn more about the benefits. In the future, the city plans to install these types of facilities at various locations across Boston. Members of the Vision Zero Task Force will be onsite to answer questions.

Parking-protected bike lanes provide a comfortable, safe place for people biking on our streets. Rather than having a bike lane between parked cars and moving cars, a parking-protected bike lane is between parked cars and the curb, reducing the risk of crashes due to opening car doors and double-parking.

Bicyclists must yield to pedestrians crossing the road. After exiting cars, people should look for people on bikes before crossing the bike lane to the sidewalk. Unless otherwise signed, all parking rules remain in effect. These include parking meter fees and resident permit parking.
