Where We're Going + How You Can Help Us Get There:

People stand at a bus stop looking at a #50 bus as it approaches. A person rides a bike in the temporary bus-bike lane that has been created with orange cones, while cars travel in the vehicle lane beside it.

Advancing bus-priority. It started with a big win on Washington Street in Roslindale. Help us build on this momentum to reduce travel times for bus riders on other congested corridors throughout Metro Boston! #BetterBuses

Together with the MA Vision Zero Coalition we are holding city leaders accountable for their goals.
