City, MBTA have made improved transit times a priority

Contrary to “Quick fixes for MBTA buses: Let buses trip green lights” (Editorial, Jan. 26), the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority and the City of Boston have been working together to improve transit travel times on Boston’s streets. In fact, improving transit times has been a priority and has contributed to increased T ridership.

To say that the city “balked” at pursuing bus-priority signalization is incorrect. For example, bus priority is a component of a traffic signal modernization project along Blue Hill Avenue and Warren Street. Bus Route 28 runs here, and service will be improved when the project is completed.
