Worcester Bike Path Survey

A group of WPI students are doing a project to develop a plan to build a commuter bike path through Worcester.

They have developed a survey, and they want to distribute it to as many people who live, study, or work in Worcester as possible.

If you or anyone you know is interested in completing this survey, you can find it here.

  1. One of my pet peeves, but one that seems to matter according to state law; Bike lanes are what you share the road with cars on. Bike Paths are what your Aunt who hasn’t been on a bike in 40 years rides at the Cape. Worcester, like all cities needs bike lanes, not paths. It’s confusing as to what they actually want as they use more than one term that carries a legal definition in the MGL. I’m sure the group behind this is well meaning, but it’s hard to take people seriously when it’s not clear if they even know what they’re asking for.
