The challenges go beyond aging equipment.
Green Line Transformation Public Meeting
The MBTA will hold public meetings on the planned Green Line Expansion.
It has been a very bad week for the MBTA. Capital spending has been accelerating, but recent incidents raise questions about the operational side.
Transforming the Green Line
MBTA engineers have developed a transformational vision for the Green Line. Even more exciting, they have set in motion a convincing program for attaining that vision.
Making buses move through traffic faster
The MBTA has working for several years on “transit signal priority”, which utilizes GPS technology to help buses and surface light rail improve reliability and reduce delays. Now that the system is being tested, I’m hopeful that its rollout can include crowded bus routes in my district, particularly the 71 (Watertown) and 73 (Waverley) buses.
Progress on the Green Line
I recently had the chance to sit down and catch up with MBTA managers working on Green Line improvements.
Improving the Green Line has been a key priority of mine for years and I am pleased by what I am hearing.
