Mega-projects alone can’t solve the urgent mobility challenges facing our communities. While MBTA Green Line light rail construction was underway in Somerville in 2019, the City simultaneously installed a ½-mile long, bi-directional, all-day bus lane on a major transit corridor serving 10,000 daily bus customers. This project took place during a particularly productive year for bus mobility in greater Boston, and contributed to a healthy “sibling rivalry” of municipalities working with the MBTA to change the conversation on bus service and infrastructure.
