Brookline Community Meeting on Gateway East Transit Improvements

Town Staff, MBTA Staff, and their consultant VHB will provide an overview of the scope, proposals, and potential outcomes of the installation of Priority Bus Lane and Transit Signal Prioritization improvements on Washington Street within the vicinity of the Gateway East Project. Installation of bus priority lanes are typically considered on urban streets with relatively high bus and general traffic volumes where many buses and their passengers are subjected to delay, and where dedicated bus lanes can significantly increase bus travel speeds, bus reliability, and bus operating efficiency. In conjunction with other transit-supportive roadway strategies and long-term, transit-supportive planning goals, dedicated bus lanes help to improve service for current riders while also attracting new riders and creating more compact, walkable, transit-oriented neighborhoods.
