Concord is committed to sustainability and goals of creating safe multi-modal transportation options as outlined in Sustainable Concord and the Town's Long Range Plan: Envision Concord 

We are looking to increase use of public transportation and other low-carbon and no-carbon transportation options, and are committed to facilitating and promoting the use of alternative and multi-modal methods of transportation that would contribute to reaching our mobility and transportation goals.

Fewer Trips by Car = Good for Your Pocket & the Environment!

The average passenger car produces significant heat trapping gases (CO2 emissions) that contribute to climate change.

Did you know that older cars are usually less fuel efficient? You can learn about how many miles per gallon your car gets on average with the Find a Car fuel economy tool to the right, and learn about some fuel-saving tips. Find out how much fuel inefficiency costs you, and try the Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator!

Whether you get around Concord by walking, biking, or using public transit, the concept of complete streets is relevant for everyone's mobility and safety.

{...} Concord will advance its efforts to create a transportation network that provides safety and accessibility for all users of our roadways, trails, and transit systems, including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, motorists, freight and commercial vehicles, and emergency vehicles. Concord recognizes that Complete Streets can increase everyday physical activity by enabling additional walking and bicycling by its residents and visitors. The Town’s Complete Streets Policy will be applied in decision-making for related infrastructure planning and construction. (Concord Public Works)
