Earlier in 2019, the MBTA proposed to change Route 1 by having the bus use Dunster Street instead of going around Harvard Yard. The City of Cambridge wants to hear the public’s thoughts on the proposal. Take our online survey at http://bit.ly/MBTARoute1 to tell us what you think. With this change, the MBTA thinks that the Route 1 could be 2 to 3 minutes faster between Harvard and Central Squares and more reliable. For bus stops that would be closed because of this proposal, it could take up to 6 minute to walk to the closest bus stop serving a rerouted Route 1. Below you will find a diagram showing the MBTA’s proposed changes to Route 1.
