Provide Local Maps For Bicycling, Walking, And Transportation

What Is It?

Many out-of-town guests may not know the Boston area or their transportation options. Providing guests with local area maps for bicycling, walking, and public transit services informs people of their car-free, environmentally-friendly options. These maps are usually offered in the lobby of the hotel or at the concierge desk.


Maps help out-of-town guests navigate the city on foot, by bike, or by public transit instead of by car or cab. This reduces local traffic congestion and air pollution from private vehicles and taxis, not to mention the benefit of future customer loyalty should the maps end up being useful for them.
