The MBTA is looking for input from residents to set priorities for its service, and you can participate by filling out the online survey.

MBTA service for Watertown residents, primarily the buses, have been much criticized – particularly this past winter. Services include the bus routes along the town’s main corridors – the 70, 71 and 73 buses – and buses to Boston from the Watertown Yard (including the 57 and the express buses).

Efforts have been started by citizens groups, such as the Watertown Public Transit Task Force, to push for better bus service in town. Then-MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott came to Watertown to listen to resident’s concerns, but she left the T after the service issues over the winter.

The town has also started to investigate what it would take to create a transportation management association (TMA) t0 provide local shuttles for businesses and residents. Read highlights from a recent forum on TMAs.
