Park&Pedal® is the first network of its kind in the world, and combines the efforts of local governments, employers, and individuals to solve the growing problems associated with commuting.
According to the US Department of Transportation, the average round-trip commute in the United States is 24 miles and increasing. While this is an unmanageable distance for most to ride every day, Park&Pedal provides a manageable and convenient step towards bike commuting.
“The Park&Pedal Commuter Network serves as an excellent example of state government working with private partners to meet the needs of the public. By expanding this unique multi-modal system, commuters will benefit greatly by not only alleviating traffic congestion, but will also encourage healthy active lifestyles.”
“This initiative is an example of how we can work across executive agencies and bring new thinking to our existing transportation assets, and create new, multi-modal connections that promote healthy commuting through cycling, and has the potential to alleviate highway congestion, while decreasing greenhouse gases.”
“The Park&Pedal program will provide a unique, outdoor recreational opportunity for Massachusetts citizens to incorporate in their daily lives while commuting to work. The results of such partnerships, like the one between DCR and Montague Bikes, will have lasting effects on thousands of people for years to come.”
