Bus Routes 111, 116 and 117 Community Meeting

Wednesday, December 7th - 6:00-7:30pm
@ Chelsea Public Library, 569 Broadway, Chelsea [map]

Hosted by the MBTA

The MBTA has been working with the community to develop a series of improvements to Bus Routes 111, 116 and 117. Based on community feedback, the MBTA will be presenting progress design plans for implementation. Recommendations include the addition of customer amenities and bus stop consolidation. Bus stop consolidation will result in changes to the location of some bus stops. Bus stops may be relocated and/or eliminated.

Passengers on non-Key Bus Routes will benefit from improvements and be affected by changes made at Key Bus Route stops.
