MBTA LogoThe MBTA is inviting public comment through April 4th on options to improve service on critical bus routes after the recent termination of Late Night Service. All interested customers and stakeholders are encouraged to reach out to the MBTA with their input on service options.

After the cancellation of the Late Night Service pilot service, the MBTA committed to considering mitigation options, including providing targeted changes to certain heavily utilized bus services that experience overcrowding, serve minority and/or low-income areas or that can improve reliability. At the March 16th meeting of the Fiscal and Management Control Board, MBTA staff outlined a set of principles to guide the development of service proposals to benefit key customer populations. The public is encouraged to review the document at www.mbta.com and provide us with comments.

The MBTA has now provided a list of bus service improvement options that are available for review and comment. Each of these service options improves service to key populations on routes experiencing overcrowding or routes serving significant minority and / or low-income populations in the MBTA service area.

As the FMCB and the MBTA continue the work of improving the MBTA’s financial condition and services, the Authority is committed to seeking and considering public input on proposed service priorities and recommendations about how to most effectively utilize the resources available for service.

The MBTA has reached out to a broad range of community organizations and transportation stakeholders to encourage review and comment on the service improvement options. MBTA staff will review all public comments, post a summary of those comments and then provide a recommendation to the FMCB for consideration at a forthcoming open board meeting.

More information is available on the web. Please send your comment on mitigation service options to the MBTA by Monday April 4, 2016 at:
