2017 Progress Report

The Massachusetts Vision Zero Coalition is committed to reviewing the City of Boston's performance to ensure public accountability in reaching its Vision Zero goals. This year's report assesses progress in two areas: Vision Zero Fundamentals and Vision Zero Actions, and provides recommendations for incorporating equitable enforcement strategies in adherence with the national guidelines published by the Vision Zero Network.

Citywide Traffic Fatalities


What You Can Do

Since we released the first progress report for Boston in 2016, two more cities, Cambridge and Somerville, have committed to Vision Zero. For FY19, Mayor Walsh has proposed a tranformational $5 million transportation investment that will greatly expand the City’s ability to more rapidly implement dozens of critical street and transit projects.

The momentum to prioritize safe, healthy, and equitable mobility for all is growing, and we encourage you to get involved by taking any of the actions below:

  • Thank Mayor Walsh for his commitment to Boston’s transportation future by:
  • Contact your city councilors and ask them to support the transportation investment and increased budget for Vision Zero for FY19. 
  • Sign up to receive alerts from the Coalition so you can attend the Police, Public Works, and Transportation department hearings for the FY19 budget this spring, and testify in support of the $5 million investment for safer, healthier, and more sustainable transportation, which will directly benefit Vision Zero.
  • Download and share the 2017 Progress Report Executive Summary. 
  • Share the progress report on social media and with your neighbors and elected officials. #VisionZero

Together we can eliminate fatal and serious injury crashes on our streets by 2030.
