The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce that this year’s Tufts Century Ride will take place on Saturday, September 17, 2016! Registration is now open through September 2nd.

The Tufts Century Ride is approximately a 100 mile bike ride open to the entire university community with stops on the Medford/Somerville, Grafton, and Boston campuses (i.e., Tufts Century).

In collaboration with the Tufts Cycling Team, the Tufts Century Ride is meant to provide a fun way for community members to connect, and a unique way to see our three campuses.

Read our blog post on “Biking Resources at Tufts” for some great tips!

Biking Resources at Tufts

Whether you regularly pedal your way to work or are looking to take advantage of the warmer weather and incorporate biking into your routine, your biked miles can help you and your company, office, or school win prizes through Bay State Bike Week. Massachusetts is the only state with its own statewide bike week, and it starts in just over a week! From May 14th to May 22nd, events across Massachusetts will encourage and reward bike ridership and promote bike safety and awareness.

You can sign up as an individual to participate and compete, but you can also join the Tufts team through the MassCommute Bicycle Challenge. Last year Tufts cyclists logged over 900 miles during Bay State Bike Week – can we top that this year?

As you participate (and after!), check out these resources available on the Boston and Medford campuses:

  • Showers and changing rooms at 574 Boston Avenue (Medford)
  • Bike racks across campus (check locations on the Tufts Bike Map)
  • Bike safety tips (also available on the Tufts Bike Map)
  • A new bike repair station outside the Medford Campus Center
  • Tufts Bikes offers a free bike share as well as mechanic hours
  • Hubway bike rental throughout the city, including locations near the Tufts campuses
  • Join NuRide, a program which rewards you for finding more sustainable ways to travel and commute

2015 Transportation Survey Results

In order to comply with Massachusetts regulations and reduce Tufts’ greenhouse gas emissions from commuting and university vehicles, the Operations Division and the Office of Sustainability survey members of the Tufts community each year about their transportation habits.  Members of the Tufts community were randomly selected to participate in a short survey containing general questions about current and future transportation at Tufts. 4,800 people participated in the survey, representing an overall response rate of 34%.

The final survey results can be viewed here.

The graph below shows the response rate per population per campus:
