Side-running bus lanes are great, but moving bus lanes to the center of the street removes conflicts and helps bus service reach its full potential.
On this walkshop, we’ll visit the Columbus Avenue project, a collaboration between the City of Boston and the MBTA that sets a new standard for bus facilities in Greater Boston. The project features center-running bus lanes, bus-boarding platforms with enhanced amenities, and pedestrian safety and accessibility improvements along the corridor. We’ll visit the vibrant Egleston Square neighborhood to tour the installation on foot and by bus. We’ll discuss the benefits and challenges of center-running bus facilities, lessons learned, and how the project improves transit equity on a critical corridor.
