Boston Streets is a blog covering transportation and livability in Boston’s urban core. We will follow the latest in getting around Boston and advocate for safer, friendlier, and more interesting public spaces.
At Boston Streets, we believe transportation plays a critical role in our cities, but it is not itself an end. Infrastructure decisions affect more than drivers using a road and should be considered within the context of other travel modes (walking, biking, riding the T) and non-travel quality of life impacts for neighbors. We also believe in rational decision-making based on known costs and benefits, and we are not afraid of the inertia of the status quo.
We hope you enjoy our ideas and join in the conversation. Comments are moderated, but all productive discourse is welcome.
