Dear MBTA Riders and Interested Parties,
The MBTA is hosting a follow-up meeting on Bus Route 71 as part of the Key Bus Route Improvement Program. Based on community feedback, preliminary recommendations have been refined to the following types of improvements: bus stop consolidation, new bus shelters, benches and trash receptacles. Bus stop consolidation will result in changes to the location of some bus stops. Bus stops may be relocated and/or eliminated. Passengers on non-Key Bus Routes will benefit from improvements, and be affected by changes made, at Key Bus Route stops.
Bus Route 71 operates between Harvard Square and Watertown Square via Mt Auburn Street. This route also provides high frequency service to important destinations such as Harvard University, Mount Auburn Hospital and the Tufts Health Plan Building. This route provides connections to the Red Line as well as many bus routes including Key Bus Routes 1, 57, 66, 73 and 77 and the following local routes – 52, 59, 68, 69, 70/70A, 72, 74, 75, 78, 86, 96, 502, 504, and 554.
The following meeting will discuss potential improvements to Bus Route 71:
