Bicycle Wayfinding

Wayfinding Sign to Minuteman Path

Wayfinding Signs to Minuteman Bikeway and BU Bridge

Signs have been installed to help people bike between the Minuteman Bikeway/Alewife and the Charles River Bike Paths/Harvard Square, as well as between Inman Square and the Boston University (BU) Bridge.

The goal of the signs is to show people a direct yet pleasant route between these popular bicycling destinations, using mostly bike lanes, local streets and off-street paths. Of course, people may choose any route they would like – the city encourages bicycling on all streets – but it is not always obvious what the easiest way to travel is for certain destinations. Wayfinding systems like this enable people to easily get around, providing a route that is simple to follow for a wide range of users.
