2018 – Park&Pedal Central & Western Mass Expansion

DCR, Montague Bikes Expand Park&Pedal Multimodal Commuting Network

Boston, MA – Monday, September 17 2018 – In an effort to promote outdoor recreational opportunities, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), along with Montague Bikes, today announced the addition of eight new Park&Pedal locations. The program, which was launched in 2015, encourages bike commuting by providing a network of parking hubs conveniently located within cycling distance from centers of employment. Commuters can park their cars for free and ride their bikes the remaining distance to work, thereby avoiding traffic on the most congested portion of their commute – the so called “last mile”. The 2018 expansion includes a number of new locations in the Boston area, and for the first time, central and western Massachusetts.
