As part of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s Bus Network Redesign initiative – to re-imagine the MBTA’s bus routes to better serve current and future bus riders – the authority is holding a series of regional meeting to present and discuss the new bus lines that will be a central component of the redesign.
One of the featured new bus lines will run from the MBTA’s Green Line D Riverside Station in Newton to Arlington Center passing through Waverley Square, Belmont Center and down Pleasant Street to the Arlington line. Below is the link to the meeting:
Between now and through the end of July Mass Department of Transportation and MBTA staff will be collecting feedback through multiple platforms.
Below are additional information about the Redesign Initiative:
- A link to an interactive version of the draft map is available here.
- There are a series of detailed, community-specific booklets that include comparisons between the draft map and today’s bus system, and a summary table of all route changes. You can find a link to all the booklets here.
- Members of the public can see how this proposed bus system could affect their personal travel by entering origins and destinations in this digital Trip Planner, which compares their potential commute with today’s network. You can find a link available here.
- The public can share their feedback on the draft map here through this feedback form.
