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.

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
