Bicycle / Active Transportation Group

We are a group of City of Boston employees working to build connections among colleagues via biking, rolling, walking, and transit. 

Our group supports active modes of moving around and through Boston for city employees. Our mission as a City of Boston employee resource group is to lead by example. By doing this, we aim to:

  • promote the joy of biking, walking, rolling, and other forms of active transportation
  • support colleagues in taking active commute modes 
  • advocate to make active transportation (biking, walking, and rolling) more accessible to the City workforce

About our group

Our mission

We work to build a culture that fosters innovation and inclusion. We want to give City employees more opportunities and resources for active commuting. We’re a resource for any City employee interested in using an active mode of transportation for work or leisure. Our programs and activities also align with the overall mission of the City of Boston.


Membership is open to all City employees. All members are eligible to chair committees. They can also become candidates for elected office, and vote in our elections.

Our goals
  • Build unity between colleagues
  • Learn about active transportation in other cultures (for example, Ciclovia)
  • Create a safe space to share experiences
  • Develop opportunities for leadership, professional development, and growth
  • Create opportunities for celebration of bicycling and walking
  • Educate colleagues and the public about the benefits of active transportation
  • Increase visibility of government employees who use active modes of transportation to help recruit and include new staff
