Roslindale Rapid Bus Pilot

Last updated: 5/9/18

Roslindale Rapid Bus Pilot

We're working with the community and the MBTA to prioritize transit on one of the City’s most utilized bus corridors.

Roslindale Rapid Bus Pilot

The Transportation Department completed a successful two-day trial of a dedicated bus lane on Washington Street in December. Now, we are looking to pilot the lane for an extended period of four weeks, running from May 7 - June 1. The pilot will once again use the existing parking lane on Washington Street, inbound between Cummins Highway and Ukraine Way. We will keep the lane open from 5 a.m. – 9 a.m., Monday through Friday.

About the pilot

During the pilot, we want to collect your feedback as well as data on a variety of performance measures. We will use this information to make a decision on making this lane permanent.

Metrics include:
  • travel time, time savings, headways
  • experiential feedback, transit rider satisfaction
  • effect on general traffic’s level of service, and
  • neighborhood support and concerns.
