Operational Testing Underway in Columbus Avenue Bus Lanes
Updated on October 5, 2021
In partnership with the City of Boston, the MBTA is making improvements to Columbus Avenue that will benefit bus riders, pedestrians, and the neighborhood as a whole.
We anticipate the new center-running bus lanes will begin operating this fall.
Building a Better T
As part of our $8 billion, 5-year capital investment plan, we're renovating stations, modernizing fare collection systems, upgrading services for our buses, subways, and ferries, and improving the accessibility of the entire system.
Operational testing of the new bus lanes is now underway, and crews are finishing final construction activities.
To allow for construction, stops may be temporarily relocated or closed through fall 2021. Please follow the posted signs for temporary stop locations and nearest connection points.
For safety reasons, there may be occasional lane reductions, parking space removals, and minor detours for pedestrians around work zones.
