City Council

Burlington Walk | Bike Council

The Burlington Walk/Bike Council is an all-volunteer advisory council to the City of Burlington. Working closely with the Department of Public Works and the Department of Parks & Recreation, the BWBC advises on infrastructure improvements and policy changes for bicycling and walking. The BWBC 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 the BWBC meetings generally held at 5:30 PM on the 1st Wednesday of each month. Meetings are hosted remotely on Zoom with an in-person option unless otherwise noted on the agenda.
