THE BRT STUDY GROUP
While Greater Boston had seen BRT proposals in the past, there had never been a technical analysis of whether and how it might serve the entire area. With technical analysis from ITDP, the Study Group posed for the first time whether BRT is right for Greater Boston, and if so, where it makes the most sense.
