HUB-WIDE—Guess what? Protected bike lanes (a.k.a. cycle tracks, like the kind Boston might build) get more people pedaling: "A recent study of eight new protected bike lanes in Austin, Chicago, Portland, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. shows they encouraged substantial numbers of new bikers to take the road, largely because they feel safer about doing so."

BOSTON—T, watch out! "Describing itself as a 'jitney' service—a low-cost alternative to other means of transportation—Bridj is asking city officials to consider its application to bring services to select routes that would let riders out in Fort Point, and outside of the Boston Public Library."

BOSTON—They currently play in Gillette Stadium: "Mayor Martin J. Walsh said he will consider a soccer stadium to house the New England Revolution. 'It's something I'd be interested in,' Walsh said. 'It's worth looking at. I'm open to a lot of ideas. It's about the growth of Boston. It's something I wouldn't turn down.'" [Biz Journal]
