Planning 101 Blog: Piloting Bus Rapid Transit in Boston

For the past two weeks, MAPC employees have been assisting with an exciting bus rapid transit (BRT) pilot on the Silver Line. From May 22 to June 6, two staff members stood by the Temple Place bus stop outside our downtown offices every day, informing commuters and casual riders of the two-week pilot, which was designed to see if elements of BRT could speed up bus travel times and reduce delay. This pilot project was spearheaded by BostonBRT, an initiative supported by the Barr Foundation.
