Boston installs new bike signs for easy navigation

Navigating around Boston by bike has never been easier.

The city announced that it has been installing new signs around the Hub to help people on two wheels get to where they are going.

According to a press release from Mayor Thomas Menino’s office, the Boston Transportation Department this week began the installation of 90 bicycle wayfinding signs that are being posted at busy intersections Downtown to point the way for cyclists to sites in Boston.

In an effort to get people to “leave their private vehicles at home,” according to Boston Transportation Commissioner Thomas J. Tinlin, the city is installing the green and white signs, outfitted with a bicycle logo and the name of the site, with the distance in miles it takes to get there.

The total cost of the project is estimated at less than $400. The installation process is expected to be completed in the next two weeks.

“We welcome bikes on our local streets and we will do whatever it takes to make a trip through Boston safe and convenient for all,” Menino said.

Here are some of the destinations the signs will take you to:

South Station

North Station

The New England Aquarium

Faneuil Hall

Park Street

Government Center
