Congestion Charges For Boston

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 17

We should have a rush hour congestion charge for Boston, 2 or 3 dollars for automobiles, 1 or 2 dollars if you are carpooling. The money should fund the MBTA, and cycling/ped infrastructure. It worked for Stockholm, it will work for us.

Boston doesn’t need to re-invent the wheel, we just need to find places in the world with awesome plans and copy them.

These things work, all we have to do is be brave enough to try them here.

Rush Hour In Copenhagen – Bikes Are Awesome

Written by Boston Biker on Mar 07

Sure as hell beats the rush hour in Boston. Were some of those people actually having friendly conversation?!? Was that a smile I saw!?! Are those people working out and having fun and commuting home all at the same time!!!

I am pretty sure they are having a good time. You could tell cause you could hear them, you know cause the horn symphony was turned off, and the roar of diesel engines was gone. Someday Boston… someday.

*to be clear, this is not some event, this is every day in this city, thousands of people use the bicycle as their main form of transport.*
