Wellesley is developing a plan to expand access to key areas of our community for all residents.
Through creative and collaborative efforts, the Town's soon-to-be-approved Sustainable Mobility Plan explores current practices and new trends in travel and sustainability to help meet greenhouse gas emission (GHG) goals.
The Town has outlined an ambitious path to achieve net zero GHG emissions by 2050, and interim goals of a 50% reduction by 2030 and a 75% reduction by 2040. Read the Wellesley Climate Action Plan to learn more about the plans and the actions required to achieve these goals.
Transportation contributes to more than 30% of GHG emissions in Wellesley. The Sustainable Mobility Plan offers concrete examples on ways to shift transportation behavior, contribute to a healthier lifestyle, improve our community's environment, and help reduce the impact of climate change. Consider these resources for transportation alternatives:
Funds to develop the Sustainable Mobility Plan were approved by vote of Town Meeting members. The the Select Board and the Planning Department collaborated on this project.
