Becca Wolfson

Executive Director, Boston Cyclists Union

Becca Wolfson has served as executive director of the Boston Cyclists Union since August of 2015. She works with residents, advocates, municipal staff, and policymakers to advance infrastructure projects and state and local transportation policy to fulfill the organization’s mission to transform the streets of greater Boston into equitable and inviting people-centered spaces affording access and connection for every body. Her passion and work not only focus on expanding access to biking as a means of transportation, but on addressing issues of mobility justice, getting people out of single occupancy vehicles, and creating physical and emotional space for bicycles, people, transit, and vibrant city life. Her experience liaising in local government and community, environmental ethic, and grassroots organizing skills were honed in the six years she spent on Cape Cod working for Barnstable County’s Resource Development Office and environmental AmeriCorps program. While not working, attending public meetings, or cooking to fuel her many trips by bike, Becca can be found doing coursework, working towards earning her Masters in Urban & Environmental Policy & Planning at Tufts University.

Becca’s commute mode share is ~97.5% by bicycle, ~1.8% bus, and ~.7% commuter rail. She has been known to be insufferable.
