The MBTA Community Engagement team is reaching out today on behalf of the Bus Network Redesign project team.
The Bus Network Redesign is a complete re-imagining of the MBTA’s bus network to reflect the travel needs of the region for current and future bus riders. The redesign builds on the work already accomplished through the 2019 route changes, and will guide recommendations for an improved bus network that aims to create a more equitable network, simplify a complicated network, maximize access to opportunities, and make transit a competitive alternative to driving.
We are excited to host a virtual public meeting about this initiative on Tuesday, June 8 from 6:00 – 7:30 PM. We will be presenting an overview of the Bus Network Redesign which will include:
- The types of improvements we aim to achieve as a result of this project
- How this project relates to other Better Bus Project initiatives to improve the bus experience
- The metrics and data we are using to define success
- The project timeline for the planning and implementation process
After the presentation, we plan to answer questions about the project.
