Go Boston 2030 is a City of Boston initiative that envisioned a bold transportation future for Boston for the next 5, 10, and 15 years.

The plan developed a far-reaching vision that proposes transformative polices and projects to improve transportation for the city’s residents, businesses and visitors. The two-year process was driven by data and steered through an unprecedented and inclusive public engagement process. Go Boston 2030 developed a Vision Report with goals and targets released in September 2015 and a final Vision and Action Plan specifying policies and projects released in March 2017.

The plan fosters connections to employment, support development and neighborhood revitalization, and enhance growth of new industries like healthcare and technology start-ups.
