Groundbreaking news for the 100,000 people using Comm Ave! -219px -129px no-repeat;"> 
"visibility and predictability for all people" Michelle Danila, Toole design

Tonight the city unveiled its cutting edge updated plan for a safer, more livable Comm Ave from the BU Bridge to Packard's Corner - including critical revisions like protected bike lanes, improved bus stops, raised crosswalks and signal priority for the Green Line and 57 bus! Thank you City of Boston! 


You may remember that none of this was part of the plan a few months ago. How did we get here? We did it with your support by:

  • mobilizing our Ambassadors to collect more than 1800 signatures and stories from people urging Boston to change course
  • amplifying your concerns to decision makers throughout City Hall
  • convening community partners - including WalkBoston, MassBike, Boston Cyclists Union, and BU Bikes - to build consensus and speak with one voice -219px -129px no-repeat;"> 
More than 150 people attended tonight's meeting

More than 100,000 people use Comm Ave everyday. It's a vital corridor and we are committed to sticking with this project until our vision for a safer Comm Ave moves from design, to construction, to reality. We hope you will be there with us. 


We've set a goal to raise $1,500 within 48 hours to fund the next phase of our campaign. Will you help us build a Safer Comm Ave?

Ultimately, we envision a seamless world-class transportation network across the region and this updated design for Comm Ave is an important step in that direction.


Stay tuned for updates as we dig into the details of this new plan over the coming weeks. In the meantime, you can learn more about our Safer Comm Ave project here and support us as a member or donor at
