We’ve seen the bus stops – packed with people – some patiently waiting – others not so patiently waiting for the bus to come pick them up and take them to work. The #7 is notoriously jammed with commuters sometimes full to capacity by the M Street stop.
The MBTA has altered the #7 Route slightly in the hopes that shortening the route would allow the bus to return back to the neighborhood to pick up waiting commuters. So what does this mean for you? Here’s the scoop:
- Beginning Tuesday, September 2nd, during peak rush hours – every other inbound bus’ final stop will be Atlantic and Summer St. It will not head further downtown to Devonshire and Otis St.
- Pappas Way will no longer be served.
- The express service will save roughly 4 minutes
- The express service to Congress Street & Atlantic Ave ONLY is marked on the schedule by the letter a.
