School Traffic Congestion

To help reduce traffic and environmental impacts around schools, please consider planning to use some of the many ways to get to school besides driving! MassDOT has prepared Safe Routes to School maps for each of the K-8 schools in Lexington to help you map walking and biking routes. For high school routes, view both of the middle school maps which combined cover all of Lexington. You can also map walking and biking directions with Google Maps. Talk with families in your neighborhood about setting up walking school buses and bike trains (PDF). You can also register for the school bus. Older youth may want to consider riding Lexpress and/or the MBTA Home Page Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) for flexible transportation options. Both have youth fares and youth passes. The MBTA Student Charlie Cards are available to all middle school and high school youth at their schools.

There are many options for getting to and from school that don't involve driving! You can also use many of these options for after-school and summer activities!
