CELEBRATE WALKING, BIKING AND TRANSIT-RIDING WITH CITY, BIKE COMMITTEE NOV. 22

“Commuter Celebration” planned to honor City’s achievements in active transportation

SOMERVILLE
- Join
Mayor Joseph Curtatone, the Somerville Board of Aldermen and School Committee,
Somerville Bicycle Committee City, Shape Up Somerville, and many others to
celebrate walking, biking, and transit-riding into the fall, as well as two
important milestones for Somerville. On Friday, Nov. 22 from 7:30 to 8:30
a.m. at the East Somerville Community School (Cross Street side), all residents
and commuters are invited to join us for hot coffee or hot cider, and students
who take part in the "active transportation" day may enter to win a free bike
helmet.

 

 

The National Association of City
Transportation Officials (NACTO) recently welcomed Somerville as an affiliate
member, including us in a prestigious group of the 30 most progressive cities
in the country enhancing quality of life through sustainable, active
transportation. Earlier this month, Somerville was also recognized by the
League of American Cyclists with a Silver level Bicycle Friendly Community
Award, recognizing a significant step up from Bronze in only two years. As
we continue to improve walking, biking, transit, safe routes to schools, bike
sharing, and much more - let's enjoy a hot breakfast beverage together
and toast to Somerville's progress thus far!
