A whole lot of middle school students came out for the The Wellesley Rules of the Ride biking event earlier this month. They are excited to explore the town more independently and safely on their bicycles. Thanks to volunteers and the Wellesley Police Department, the students now have more skills and confidence to do so.
Parents that stayed while students rode in the bike trains discussed other mobility opportunities including Catch Connect which offers FREE van rides around Wellesley and useful neighboring spots for folks 12 and over Monday-Friday 6.45am-6.45pm.
Learn more about the biking event, Catch Connect and the other mobility options in town here.
The weather is good, so this is the prime time to try out new mobility options in town. More than 30% of our emissions come from transportation in and around. Like what you say? How about FREE rides around Wellesley and useful neighboring spots on the Catch Connect van service for folks 12 and over. Try taking the train to Natick or Boston; the T to the Red Sox game; walk, scoot, or bike to work, to friend's houses and to do errands this month.
While you are trying new transportation options, try combining your Amazon deliveries (maybe your neighbors too) to 1 x a week to reduce truck deliveries in town.
These are all part of Town of Wellesley's Sustainable Mobility Plan which also includes more sidewalk connectivity, new bike racks and bike repair stations, more road crossing lights, bike lanes, and electric vehicle charging stations.
