MBTA bus service cuts, route changes would hurt Boston, Michelle Wu says

0 15

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu said she “strongly supports” many of the commitments made in the MBTA’s bus network redesign proposal, but is concerned about service cuts, route changes, and a lack of connections in certain neighborhoods.

“We know that certain existing neighborhood routes are key to our riders — including older adults and people with disabilities,” Wu wrote in a letter to MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak this week. “These routes must be complemented, not removed.”

Wu said the City of Boston opposes changes to bus route 11 between South Boston and downtown, route 39 between Jamaica Plain and Back Bay, and route 55 between Fenway-Kenmore and Back Bay.

She is also calling for the restoration of the pre-pandemic route 55, with service to downtown Boston.
