    2016 Regional Transportation Plan vision map

    The Cape Cod Commission (CCC) is working with partner organizations, municipalities, and citizens across the region to document and plan for improvements to existing bicycling facilities and, where and as possible, to help create a Capewide network of bicycling routes. (See above: "Shared Use Path Vision Map" from the 2016 Cape Cod Regional Transportation Plan.)
