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.


  • To work with residents, businesses, and the Department of Public Works to identify priorities for expanding sidewalks, crosswalks, and bike routes, and to build public support for these projects. The committee bases this work on the Pedestrian-Bicycle Master Plan, the Great Road Master Plan, and the Town Complete Streets Policy (see links below).
  • To work with neighborhoods and the Department of Public Works to identify priorities for traffic-calming measures and explore their feasibility, based on the Neighborhood Traffic Calming Policy. 
  • To recommend safety and other improvements to intersections and roadways based on studies the Town may commission, such as the Great Road Optimization Study.
  • To monitor and expand public transportation services, including MBTA routes, Bedford Local Transport, and connections with neighboring towns, and to improve accessibility at bus stops and expand the number of bus shelters.
  • To help identify funding for these projects.

Traffic calming is the use of engineering design to reduce speeding, high traffic volumes, aggressive driving, and unnecessary vehicular traffic through neighborhoods. If a resident believes their neighborhood is experiencing excessive traffic speeds or volume, they should begin by reviewing the Town's Neighborhood Traffic Calming Policy, and bringing the problem to the attention of TAC via email.
