Boston Ranked as #1 Walking and Biking City in U.S.


The non-profit group Alliance for Biking & Walking, has published a new report that names Boston as the #1 city in the nation, for having the most bikers and walkers and least number of biker and pedestrial fatalities.

The 2012 report was created after looking through data provided by government agencies, advocacy groups and surveys.

You may also be surprised to learn that Boston also ranked 3rd for safety, education and advocacy efforts regarding bikers and pedestrians in the city.

Not to surprisingly, perhaps, Boston does rank in the bottom third of the funding and policy category.
