Sudbury Transportation Committee


The Transportation Committee was created by the Select Board to address a key feature of livable communities: transportation. A livable community is defined as

…one that is safe and secure, has affordable and appropriate housing and transportation options, and offers supportive community features and services. …Well-designed, livable communities promote health and sustain economic growth, and they make for happier, healthier residents — of all ages…   See AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities

With the exception of specialized transportation provided by the Council on Aging, Sudbury is currently car-dependent, putting a number of residents at risk of isolation, loss of work, inability to access medical care, etc. There is no public transportation within town boundaries; parking space for commuter rail in adjoining towns is limited; and, there are few pedes­trian-friendly routes from residences to likely destinations (e.g., town buildings, library, houses of worship, etc.).
