  • Adding pedestrian refuge islands at the intersection of Holland Street and Cameron Ave to make it more comfortable and safer to cross for all users
  • Creating in-lane bus stops
  • Implementing a bike lane from Wallace Street to Teele Square northbound
  • Installing a peak hour bus lane (6:00am - 9:00am) and commercial loading zone (after 9:00am) from Buena Vista Road to Winter Street southbound to improve bus reliability for people traveling in the morning and providing operations support for local businesses
  • Implementing a protected bike lane from Davis Square to Winter Street northbound to improve the safety of people biking
  • Installing a bus and bike lane from Winter Street to Davis Square southbound to improve the reliability of the bus for people taking transit and improve the safety for people biking
