Boston Transit Needs StudyAreaMassDOT has scheduled three final public meetings on the Roxbury/Dorchester/Mattapan Transit Needs Study

Thursday, March 22, 6-8pm, Mattapan Branch Library, 1350 Blue Hill Avenue

Thursday, March 29, 6-8pm, Dudley Branch Library, 65 Warren Street

Thursday, April 12, 6-8pm, Grove Hall Community Center, 51 Geneva Avenue

The study area, left, stretches from Mattapan Square to the edge of the South End, and from Egleston Square to Uphams Corner and Codman Square.  It is one of the largest areas within 10 miles of downtown Boston not served by rapid transit.  The MassDOT study will identify opportunities to improve public transportation service that have broad community support.

MassDOT has conducted an extensive civic engagement process, including more than 1,300 surveys, information tables at key transit hubs, online tools, six public meetings and ten advisory group meetings.  Proposed recommendations including short-term and long-term projects have emerged from this outreach effort and are now prepared for public comment. 

The public meetings will provide the public with an opportunity to discuss the proposed recommendations.  For more information, please visit the Roxbury/Dorchester/Mattapan Transit Needs Study website.
