Did you know?...
The Lexington Board of Selectmen have officially proclaimed May 9-18, 2014 Lexington Bike Walk n Bus Week!
There are approximately ninety-four miles of sidewalk, five miles of bike and shared lane pavement markings as well as the nationally recognized Minuteman Bikeway currently serving the community. Lexington is also served by MBTA bus routes 62 & 76, along with various commuter shuttles run by the 128 Business Council, Lincoln Labs, and Avalon Bay Lexington Hills. Additionally, the Town operated Lexpress bus service is one of the longest running community bus programs in the Northeast and provides approximately 72,000 rides per year!
Town staff work with various committee members to maintain, improve and expand these facilities, recognizing the importance of supporting these active forms of transport. Just recently, the Greenways Corridor Committee’s ACROSS Lexington Task Force working with Conservation and DPW staff established the first of what will eventually become a network of marked pedestrian and bicycle routes linking many parts of the town.
