The City of Boston and MBTA are partnering on potential bus lane improvements to North Washington Street. In order to facilitate better northbound bus service, they are investigating a potential outbound bus lane. This lane would not impact existing parking or the bike lane. A virtual public meeting will provide residents an opportunity to share their thoughts and opinions on the bus lane.
Date: Wednesday, July 15
Time: 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM

This potential bus lane is part of the Healthy Streets program, focused on making changes to Boston’s streets to support a healthy reopening and an equitable recovery following the COVID-19 shutdown. The program includes three major elements:
- Outdoor seating and pick-up zones for restaurants and small businesses
- Quick-build bike lanes for safe and connected bike routes
- Expanded bus stops and bus-only lanes to improve social distancing on transit services
