Welcome to the BWBC

The Burlington Walk/Bike Council is an all-volunteer advisory council to the City of Burlington. We work closely with and advise the Department of Public Works and the Department of Parks & Recreation on infrastructure improvements and policy changes for bicycling and walking. The council also leads advocacy efforts and organizes events and activities that promote and celebrate walking and biking in Burlington and beyond. Anyone interested in making Burlington a better and safer place for bicycling and walking is encouraged to attend our meetings generally held on the 4th Thursday of each month in City Hall Room 12.

PlanBTV Walk-Bike Implementation Status 35 minutes
Implementation of the Walk-Bike Master Plan is woefully behind schedule. We’ll discuss some of the reasons behind this and what needs to change in order to make real progress on implementing the plan.

Tour of Union St. protected bike lane 45 minutes
At 6:15 we will head out on bicycles to ride the new protected bike lane on Union Street. After testing out the new infrastructure we'll gather in the Food Shelf parking lot to share impressions, celebrations, and critiques. Please bring working front and rear lights for your bike if you will be joining us for this portion of the meeting.

See you there!
