As part of the MBTA‘s Better Bus Project, changes will be made to bus routes to improve service. I have copied information from the MBTA regarding changes to routes in Senator Brownsberger’s district:
From the MBTA:
On September 1, 2019, the first round of Better Bus Project service changes will go into effect, with additional changes in the following months.

Starting September 1, 2019, Route CT1 will be eliminated. Most CT1 stops are served by the Route 1 bus.
