To examine, evaluate and advise the Select Board regarding board actions and measures that will improve overall resident mobility, expand the use of non-automobile based methods of local and regional transportation, and improve traffic circulation and availability of transportation services that implement the transportation-related recommendations of the Town's Vision Statement and Comprehensive Plan.


  • To identify priority locations for sidewalk and crosswalk additions and extension and to secure public support for proposed sidewalk projects.
  • To determine the feasibility of preferred traffic calming and safety techniques/locations including signage improvements consistent with sound engineering principles.
  • To recommend intersection and roadway improvements as well as bicycle path/route upgrades and additions.
  • To investigate expansion of transportation services including interconnections with neighboring Town services and MBTA services.
  • To engage residents and businesses in the establishment of a Transportation Management Association or similar employer-based organization.
  • To identify funding opportunities for implementation of recommended actions.

Traffic calming is the use of engineering design to reduce speeding, high traffic volumes, aggressive driving, and unnecessary vehicular traffic through local neighborhoods. If a resident believes that pervasive traffic speed or volume issues exist within their neighborhood, they should begin by reviewing the Town of Bedford Neighborhood Traffic Calming Policy, and bringing the problem to the attention of the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) via email.
