Only about a third of Cambridge residents drive alone to work (blue). More than half walk (light blue), transit (green), and bike (violet).

The temporary one-way streets created in East Cambridge in February because of snow impacts will return to their previous two-way traffic pattern as of Wednesday, April 1.
Cambridge is one of the easiest places to live or work without driving. With over 40,000 households, 100,000 jobs, and hundreds of thousands of services in just over 6 square miles of land, just about all of what people need is close at hand. With so many things close by, this affords people in Cambridge an array of transportation options.
Beginning on January 12, 2015, the hours of operation for metered street parking will expand from 6 PM to 8 PM, mirroring the meter operations in Harvard Square. The expanded hours will discourage vehicles from using short-term metered space as overnight parking during peak evening business hours. The hourly rate will remain unchanged.
Pilot program has just begun.
