All-Door Boarding Demonstration to Test BRT Features on Washington Street Silver Line Buses

Boston, MA (May 22, 2017) -- BostonBRT, the MBTA, and the City of Boston announced today a partnership to demonstrate "all-door boarding," a core feature of bus rapid transit (BRT), along the SL4 and SL5 Washington Street Silver Line between Dudley Square and downtown. During the Silver Line Better Bus Experience, running from May 24-June 6, the public will be able to board and exit buses through all doors to test how this improvement creates a faster, more convenient, and reliable ride. The demonstration will include all Silver Line Washington Street buses (SL4 and SL5) in both directions, at every stop, from start of service on May 24 through the end of service on June 6.
