Bringing Greater Boston’s Bus System up to Speed
LivableStreets Alliance, in collaboration with the Institute for Transportation & Development Policy (ITDP), is excited to announce the release of our report, Keeping Pace: How Greater Boston’s Bus System Can Support a Growing and Changing Region. The report outlines the system's failure to keep up with the region it serves, and provides an actionable plan to get the bus system back on track by 2030. It emphasizes the need for rapid action and collaboration between all levels of government to provide the necessary resources to mitigate some of the pressing issues, like the staffing crisis at the MBTA and overall lack of funding.

This bill includes many important measures including:
One final change to highlight is that the law does now require bicyclists to use rear red lights at night; however, the absence of a light is not cause for an officer to stop a bicyclist.
