MBTA Survey

The MBTA is currently working on the Bus Network Redesign, a project to transform the bus experience for those who depend on it most. We want to create a better and more equitable bus network—to do that, we need your input! The MBTA has launched an online survey in support of the project. The survey is focused on answering two key questions:

  • Does the MBTA take you where you need or want to go?
  • When you need to get somewhere, is riding the MBTA a good option for you?

The survey is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), and is also available in a fully accessible format.  Click here to access the survey on the MBTA website.
