MassDOT is hosting the second community meeting and open house on the Everett Transit Action Plan on Thursday, February 11 at the Connolly Center in Everett.

Stop in for the Open House anytime between 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM to learn about the study, see the range of transit improvement ideas received to date, and to share your thoughts and ideas.

At 6:30 PM, project staff will present a summary of the alternatives being considered to improve Everett’s public transportation, including:

• More early morning, late evening or weekend service
• Using the Chelsea Silver Line Busway for direct access from Everett to Logan Airport and the Seaport
• Making the 104/109 bus route one of the MBTA Key Bus Routes
• Dedicated bus lanes on Broadway for faster service to Sullivan Square
• Rerouting the 112 bus route to improve access to Chelsea
• Exploring public/private partnerships to improve transit in support of new development
