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.

Maynard Mural Project Seeks Contributions

The Maynard Sesquicentennial Committee, in partnership with the Maynard Cultural Council are excited to announce the next “Maynard as a Canvas” mural project and are seeking community contributions.

The theme is Maynard: Past, Present and Future.

The Maynard Select Board has approved using a Naylor Court wall in Maynard’s Cultural District for the new mural. This prominent site is a highly visible feature in the ongoing revitalization of this area. For more information on this site and on the mural project itself, please visit this site: https://artist.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=8809

As we slowly emerge from the limitations placed on public gatherings by the events of the past year, it is projects such as this that will add to the enjoyment of our outdoor spaces here in town. As we celebrate our town’s 150th anniversary, a mural in a downtown public space offers us an opportunity to learn about the town’s past, participate in its present and look forward to our future through the lens of art.
