It’s been over two months since many of us have been able to safely head into work, and even longer since we could ride the T without thinking of the threat posed by COVID-19. For some, remote work is coming to an end: with Massachusetts entering into phase one of reopening on May 25th, Tufts researchers will be getting back into their labs, and some offices can resume work at a reduced capacity. Yet, with the Baker-Polito administration admitting that public transportation “unavoidably creates some risk” for COVID-19 transmission, many are still wary of taking the T.
In order to help you navigate safe and sustainable transit during this time, the Office of Sustainability has put together a How-To Guide on creating your own bicycle commute. Check out our tips on designing a route, maintaining your bike, and more on our blog.
