About the Board

The Brookline Transportation Board was formed in 1974 by an act of the State Legislature to administer all matters relating to parking and transportation in the town. The Board of Selectmen previously held these duties.

The 6 members of the Transportation Board are appointed by the Board of Selectmen to staggered 3-year terms.

Board Responsibilities

The Transportation Board has authority over the Traffic Rules and Regulations, including such issues as:

  • Bus stops
  • General parking prohibitions
  • Handicap parking
  • One-way streets
  • Parking meters
  • Permit parking
  • Stop and yield signs
  • Taxi service
  • Tow zones
  • Traffic calming projects
  • Truck exclusions
  • Turn restrictions

Additional Responsibilities

In addition to these duties, the Transportation Board takes a proactive role in addressing transportation problems that affect both neighborhoods and the town as a whole, while also recommending necessary capital projects. The Transportation Board establishes subcommittees from time to time.

Board Meetings

The Transportation Board meets regularly to discuss and act upon transportation issues brought before it by the Department of Public Works (DPW) Transportation Division staff. The date, time, place and agenda items for all Transportation Board meetings are posted in advance on the DPW and town calendars. All Transportation Board meetings are open to the public.
