Better bus service
Through the Better Bus Project, we’re finding new ways to improve the experiences of people who ride our buses.
We started by listening to the needs and concerns of more than 3,000 riders at bus stops, community meetings, and online. What they asked for: more reliable service on more routes that run frequently all day, not just during peak hours.
With that objective in mind, we’ve come up with 47 proposals to update and modernize existing routes. These are good and long-overdue changes. Taken together, they lay the foundation for a bus network with more frequent and reliable service—and one that provides better connectivity in Greater Boston.
What we need is your feedback. With your help, we’ll bring these changes to our board in April 2019. If they’re approved, the changes will begin to take effect as early as the fall of 2019.
Why We’re Doing This
We haven’t made significant changes to the bus network in almost a decade. And, in that time, travel patterns have changed and traffic has only gotten worse.
With the Better Bus Project, we’re trying to ensure that existing resources and upcoming investments are helping the most people and doing the most good.
