Departure platform moved to improve #73 and #71 bus service

Platform Change

As of Monday, April 28 the departure platform for MBTA buses #73 and #71 going to Belmont and Watertown during Monday through Saturday will now be on the lower busway of Harvard Station. Departure on Sundays and holidays will be on the upper busway. This change should help improve service times and is a direct result of passenger input received by the MBTA.
