Welcome to the BWBC

The Burlington Walk/Bike Council is an all-volunteer advisory council to the City of Burlington. We work closely with and advise the Department of Public Works and the Department of Parks & Recreation on infrastructure improvements and policy changes for bicycling and walking. The council also leads advocacy efforts and organizes events and activities that promote and celebrate walking and biking in Burlington and beyond. Anyone interested in making Burlington a better and safer place for bicycling and walking is encouraged to attend our meetings generally held on the 4th Thursday of each month in City Hall Room 12.

Find us on Facebook as "The Burlington Walk/Bike Council"

To check out past meeting minutes, work plans and other documents please see our Documents page. For more on our background and history see our History page.

Instead of our regular November meeting, we will instead be cohosting, along with Local Motion, a bike ride and meeting on Sunday, November 19. This is a continuation of the conversation we held at our last meeting (and a second attempt at the ride we didn't take then).
