South Station Direct Connect

The Office of Transportation Planning has launched a new standardized, easy-to-use web design for major transit projects.  The website design developed by an in-house expert team of Planning and Information Technology employees will be consistent and user-friendly for the public while also being cost efficient by reducing reliance on use of outside consultants.

Among the first examples:

  • The Direct Connect website with the latest information on the collaboration with the City of Boston to connect Dudley Station and South Station with new enhanced Silver Line Washington Street service that will allow a direct connection to Silver Line Waterfront service to Logan Airport.
  • The 28X website on the proposed 28X MBTA Bus Service between Mattapan Square and Ruggles Station to dramatically improve service along the Route 28 bus corridor.  More than $115 million in federal stimulus funds are being sought to support the project.

Check out the new Direct Connect website.  The 28x Bus website is here

An update on Direct Connect, which is moving forward on schedule for completion within the next few weeks, including photos of work progress, can be found on Bostonist.
