Public Information Meeting # 2

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.
