Bedford’s Pedestrian/Bicycle Master Plan (P/BMP) is a town-wide initiative to improve the experience of walking and bicycling around town. Funded through the Community Preservation budget, P/BMP will build on existing trails and sidewalks to give residents of all ages more transportation options for local trips.
To gather broad-based community input, Bedford is using up-to-date wiki-based mapping technology designed by the town’s consultant Peter Robie of the Toole Design Group. Robie has generated an online, interactive map where Bedford residents can share ideas and areas of concern about walking and biking around town.
Both the map and instructions on how to use it are available:
- To learn about Bedford’s new Wikimap and to share your ideas, click How to Participate to view or print a PDF of the instructions.
- To add information to the map (identify routes you currently use or would like to use, share concerns, upload pictures and more) visit https://wikimapping.com/wikimap/Bedford.html
For general comments about the Wikimap, or to ask for help, contact Peter Robie, firstname.lastname@example.org. For issues such as potholes that require immediate attention, please contact the Bedford Department of Public Works at (781)-275-7605.

Information collected via the Wikimap will be incorporated in the Pedestrian/Bicycle Master Plan Open House at 7 pm on Wednesday, November 12 in the Multi-Purpose room at Town Hall, 10 Mudge Way. Click this Open House Flyer link to view or print full event information.
